Mozilla Firefox for Android Phones

Mozilla has recently released a portable version of Firefox for Windows based mobile phones, next on the track is their mobile project named Fennec, this this project Mozilla will release customized Firefox Browser for Android phones. As per a member of Fennec team, the project Fennec's testing for Android is going good and soon they we'll have an alpha release of their product out for Android OS handsets.

Firefox on Android
Following are couple testimonials from Fennec team:

You’ll note that this is the full Firefox interface, and not the Fennec/Firefox Mobile UI; we’re testing with the full interface because it’s significantly more complex than the mobile UI and stresses Gecko much more. So, if the full UI works, then Fennec should work fine as well. Given the interest in Android on netbook and tablet devices, an updated version of the full Firefox UI might find a home on some of these. Android has been pretty great to work with so far; it’s a bit unusual platform for us due to its Java core, but with the NDK we’re able to bridge things together without many problems.

We’re still a ways to go before any kind of usable alpha release, but we’re certainly one step closer. We’ll also be able to accelerate our progress now that we have some of the basic scaffolding in place. I know I’m looking forward to running Fennec on my Droid, and there are tons of Android devices coming out that should be great platforms for Fennec.

This is how it will look like once runed on latest Nexus One, an Android based handset from Google, similar interface could be seen on Motorola Droid as well.

Stay tuned for more updates! We'll share the download details as soon as Mozilla releases Firefox for Android handsets. [via TheNextWeb]
