Mozilla Firefox for Android Coming Soon


The groundwork for porting Firefox to Android has started according to one of the developers behind the project . That looks like normal Firefox interface on a PC and would be a dream come true.

Looks like they are testing the fully loaded firefox using an android emulator after porting fennec to android. Such an interface would we great for today’s devices which come with large displays.  Opera mini and Opera Mobile do it in style in Java and Symbian platforms.

From a developer’s blog

Mouse events sort of work, toplevel windows sort of work, keyboard doesn’t work yet but shouldn’t be hard to hook up.  This is running in an emulator at the moment for ease of debugging, but it’s working just fine on physical hardware as well.

We’ll let you know once we find any piece of code available for experimentation !
