\r\n\r\nMozilla has just announced Firefox 4 beta is now available for Android and Maemo. Saying, â€œA major focus of this release is to increase performance and responsiveness,â€ Mozilla says on itsÂ blog that Firefox 4 beta for mobile is, â€œbuilt on the same technology platform as Firefox for the desktop,â€ but optimized for the mobile environment.\r\n\r\nThe mobile version features Firefox Sync to sync your phone browser with your desktop browser, the Awesome Screen and Bar, â€œwhich instantly gives you access to your recent history, bookmarks and tabs,â€ and probably most importantly this release features pinch-to-zoom as well.\r\n\r\nOn the technical side, Mozilla says:\r\n
â€œTwo of the big architecture changes are Electrolysis and Layers. Our alpha contained Electrolysis which allowed the browser interface to run in a separate process from the one rendering Web content, resulting in a much more responsive browser. This beta brings the Layers pieces which improve overall performance and in graphics areas such as scrolling, zooming and animations.â€
