It’s somewhat amusing that both Firefox and – more surprisingly – Google Chrome for Android remain at the beta stage. Where’s the alpha? Just a thought.
Anyway! We’re promised that “Something BIG” is coming to Firefox for Android this week. It’s like Christmas come early.
We’re not given any specifics, and the tweet - "Something BIG is coming your way next week" - is simply accompanied by an image with the words “Fast. Smart. Safe.”
A recent Android Firefox update introduced Flash support for smartphone users (“PHONES only”, stresses the change log), a redesigned UI, new start page, and “significant performance advancements”.
So what might this update introduce? Well, tablet users are crying out for Flash support, there are known issues with the Samsung Galaxy Note stylus, and ‘find in page’ isn’t yet supported.
Or maybe Firefox will go the whole hog and drop the Beta. You never know…
