Pocketnow managed to grab hold of an Alpha release of Fennec (Firefox Mobile) running on an Android device, as you can see in the following video. The release is still buggy and it lacks multitouch support, but overall the experience is pretty promising. You can download the Alpha now, by going to bit.ly/fennec-android on your phone.


You’re required to use Android 2.0 or later, in order to make the browser work, so you’re not going to run it on a HTC Hero unit, that’s for sure. We simply love the fast page load times, the tab managed and the add-ons plus plugins, in spite of their limited number.

Getting around in Fennec Alpha is very easy, so a swipe to the left reveals the bookmark option, plus the settings, while a swipe to the right shows you all of the pages you’ve got open.
