Fennec Firefox Mobile Browser Video Brief


So Fennec 1.0 Beta 1 is finally released for the Maemo OS running on Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. The Firefox browser for mobiles brings I’m happy to same the same general features (and another hot logo) and concepts of a regular Firefox browser, with search engine plugins, awesome bar, and tabs and controls bar that shows by left and right tapping the screen.

This is only for the Internet Tablet of N810 however, and I sure do hope they keep it as good for regular mobile and smart phones. Also, I think what’s more important and useful than a search plugin, is the add Keyword for search bookmark which is extremely helpful to minimize clicks if your search plugins grow large.

NOTE: As of now, your Google Image searches for fennec returns the Fennec animal. Give it a little while and see how we geeks mess up with everybody’s lives. Soon scientists are gonna have to include -browser in their search queries by default to get what they want :).
