Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla's latest browser "Fennec", specifically designed for mobile devices has finally been released. Currently, it is only available for the Nokia N810 platform. Support for other platforms is planned for the future. Ars Technica has a review of the new browser. If you are interested in getting involved, but don't have a Nokia N810, you can install it on your desktop (Windows, Linux and OS X) and experiment with it.

tried it on my N810..in short..blowz chunks. It run from SD with max memory available, and its pretty unusable at the moment. Ran like a drunken tree sloth.

The original post-Netscape Mozilla browsers also ran like a drunken tree sloth, so there's hope that they'll improve Fennec.

Over a period of several years.

What exactly is this?

Is this a new name for Minimo? Was there some contest that I missed to find a name even *worse* than Minimo? Considering the sex appeal of "Fennec" and the quality of Minimo... I don't think Opera has much to worry about. And I'm far from being an Opera fan.

No, this is a completely new product. I believe it's supposed to be closer to the desktop browser in terms of architecture and stuff but I don't really know what that means from a practical standpoint. I expect they'll explain it better when they release it.

I dont have a nokia to run it on, so i chose my laptop. I have to say it gets a 90/100 in acid 3 what ever that should help me with( compliance or whatever). What i liked about it is the page load times which are really faster than most of the browsers I use. No i don't use lynx obviously. Its nice to run it and a better skin may help me use it better on windows. I wish they write a plugin to change the interface to once sided buttons that fade in and out when u click near the right or top ot which ever corner.
