Firefox Mobile 'within weeks'

By   |  October 8, 2008

The Mozilla Foundation expects the first alpha releases of a mobile version of Firefox to be made available “within weeks”. At least this is what Mozilla chief executive John Lilly believes. In an interview with the San Jose Mercury Lilly says that developers were working on a mobile Firefox edition and “we’ll see some alphas in a few weeks”.

A mobile edition of Firefox is long overdue, and most mobile makers have already opted to go with Opera’s Mini browser or make their own browser.

A portable version of Firefox is a promising notion as perhaps finally Firefox users can enjoy synchronisation between their desktop and mobile browsers.

Firefox developers are apparently working on a touchscreen as well as a non-touchscreen edition of the browser.

    Well it’s about time, I guess the question is….are they too late ?

    @ronald:
    While it feels as if Firefox is “late” in getting to the point of releasing a mobile version, I’m not sure they are “too late”. Firefox has a strong user base and so if they get features such as synchronisation right then there is a good chance that most desktop Firefox users will adopt the mobile version as well. The interesting battle is going to be the one with Opera. Opera’s Mini is fantastic and I’m fairly sure that most Mini users are tempted to use Opera on their desktop just for the great synchronisation capabilities. Firefox could work the other way around if they do it right.
