Mozilla Releases Firefox 4 Beta For Android, Maemo 128

An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla has released the first beta of its Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo. The browser is based on the Firefox 4 core and should be released in the same time frame as the big brother. The mobile browser includes Firefox Sync, a cloud feature that enables users to sync browsing history, passwords, form-fill data and bookmarks, as well as open tabs." Android news site Androinica also mentions the release, and provides a small tutorial on installing beta apps for Android.

    Don't really care about browsers supported by giant corporations. It's Firefox forever for me

    As to the whole notion that somehow the browser writer sees my bookmarks - I have big problems with that.

    There's also the fact that it hammers the network connection incessantly, which absolutely kills the battery. I have a Galaxy S (T-Mobile Vibrant) and Firefox made the top three in the list of energy users after about ten minutes. This phone doesn't have an especially stellar battery to begin with. I don't need my web browser adding to the strain unnecessarily.
