Firefox going mobile

30 Comments

FirefoxMozilla has made their intentions for mobile browsing loud and clear in a recent blog post, having announced two new hires and an eye to the mobile experience while they develop their next generation of Firefox. The BlackBerry Browser has had its chops busted by the community as a whole, but we’ve had a sneak peak at the next one, which will include tabbed browsing and a search bar. Is Firefox going to put a dent into the mobile browsing market, or is RIM about to catch up?

    a] Check out Opera mini. It’s better than whatever trash Mozilla’s gonna produce and it’s here now

    b] BlackBerries aren’t known for their excessive processor power or loads of RAM. Given Firefox’s track record, you won’t want to use Fx on a BB.

    c] RIM doesn’t have to “catch up” ’cause Firefox mobile does not exist yet and won’t likely do so in the next few months.

    If firefox went mobile I’d delete opera in a seccond. This opera mini is garbage. Its slow and hardley works correctly for most places I visit. I got the new bb and I can’t go to u tube like it says it can and there’s no one ever around to help me with my problems. Ev erytime I ask for help they act all snoty and don’t know what to do

    Rkive, what kind of BlackBerry did you get? I bought a Pearl recently and it plays YouTube just fine through Opera mini.

    Okay so let's sum this up…

    Mozilla on a BB would rock! Having Flash would be a GREAT assett to any BB user! Also, Mozilla is safer and runs more efficiently than Opera. Not bashing Opera…it has its uses as well! It is a decent Browser…but still nobody can touch Mozilla! If they go mobile they are going to make a small chunk of cash!
