Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla has announced a new alpha release of its Fennec mobile browser for Android and the Nokia N900. Fennec offers support for add-ons and has tight integration with Firefox Sync, a browser synchronization service that was formerly called Weave. The support for Firefox Sync is arguably Fennec's killer feature, especially because Mozilla is planing to include the synchronization features out-of-the-box in Firefox 4. Users will be able to have access to the their bookmarks, browsing history, and tabs across all of their computers and supported mobile devices."

Great to hear they're working in add-ons for Fennec. I haven't had a chance to look, but hopefully it won't be terribly difficult to port my extensions. The extension framework has always been Firefox's greatest feature. There are very few things you can't do, as long as you don't mind tearing your hair out for a few weeks trying to figure out how.
