Mozilla has just revealed a first look at its new Mobile Firefox interface.
I am truly looking forward to the release of Mobile Firefox. I wrote glowing reviews of the Opera mobile browser, but have since become disillusioned. Mainly because the feature I raved about, the ability to switch between a horizontal and vertical screen view, stopped working on my phone as soon as it went out of beta, In fact, the whole application has been behaving pretty crappily since I ditched the beta copy for the release version…
Now that I think about it, what would be really really exciting to me is if Sprint offered Mobile Firefox as a native browser on their phones instead of their current proprietary basically-functional-but-less-than-exciting mobile browser. But I’m sure that’s purely wishful thinking.
If you, like me, can’t wait any longer to play with Mobile Firefox, you can now download the emulator here. It feels a bit like sitting behind the wheel of your parents’ car when you were six and pretending you’re flying down the freeway when you are, in fact, still in the safety of the garage, but it means that running Firefox on your phone is one step closer to reality.
