Fennec Alpha 1 for Windows Mobile 6 now available

Three months after the pre-alpha Fennec for HTC Touch Pro was released, now Mozilla has launched the Alpha 1 version of its browser for Windows Mobile 6. Naturally, this version has the same overall look as the one released for Maemo devices. It is entirely CSS-based, it supports add-ons and it includes the JeMalloc memory management library. Since we’re talking about an early version, Mozilla’s devs don’t recommend the use of Fennec...

Firefox Mobile (Fennec) to use Google Location Services

Mozilla Firefox for mobile, aka Fennec, will feature geolocation, thanks to Google’s Location Services. According to Doug Turner from Mozilla, geolocation will be an “opt-in tool” that shares users’ location only if they want to.  If you allow Fennec to use geolocation, the browser will become smarter, providing a better Web experience. For example, when you search for “pizza” via your phone, the browser will return only relevant...

Mozilla Fennec to sync tabs between desktop and mobile browsers

It looks like the non-beta version of Fennec, aka Mozilla Firefox Mobile, will bring more than we’ve expected. For instance, Jono from Mozilla Labs says Fennec will come with Weave – a Mozilla application that is now capable of syncing open tabs between your desktop computer and your mobile device. Which means that every Firefox browser you have will allow you to access open tabs from other synced browsers (even if they’re more than...

Firefox Mobile (Fennec) for HTC Touch Pro scheduled for February

Available until now only for Nokia’s N810 Internet Tablet, Mozilla Firefox Mobile (known under the codename Fennec) might be released pretty soon for Windows Mobile too. The Mozilla Wiki webpage says that the company is “targeting a Milestone release for the first week of February, targeting the HTC Touch Pro.” As you can see, not all WM handsets out there will be able to run Fennec starting February. Even so, this is a good start for...
