Recently Mozilla announced that the final version of Firefox is now available for Nokia’s Maemo platform. Nokia N900 owners can enjoy many of the same Firefox features they know and love on the desktop on their mobile device.
With the release of Firefox for mobile devices, Mozilla is on its way of completing its dream mission of making available one Web that everyone can access irrespective of device or location.
Firefox Mobile is based on key design principles of minimal typing, seamless synchronization with desktop Firefox and the ability to take your Firefox with you.
The new Firefox Mobile version comprises some interesting features consisting of:
> Awesome Bar – Go to your favorite sites in just a couple of keystrokes with intelligent and personalized searching
> Weave Sync – Sync your Firefox tabs, history, bookmarks and passwords between your desktop and mobile device for a seamless browsing experience
> Add-ons – Customize your Firefox by adding small pieces of functionality, like games and news readers, that help make the mobile Web browser your own
> Location-Aware Browsing – Get maps and information relevant to your location
> Tabbed browsing – View open tabs as thumbnails to easily identify and select the Web page you’d like to go to next
> Safe Browsing – Get an Instant Web Site ID and easily access and edit security settings
> Available in more than 30 languages
With support for add-ons, you can customize your Firefox by adding features that help make your browser your own. Add-ons like AdBlock Plus, URL Fixer, TwitterBar, language translators, and geo guides become especially handy when you’re out and about on your mobile device. You can both discover and install add-ons directly from your Nokia N900. There are currently more than 40 Firefox add-ons available for mobile.
