Firefox on Nokia


The Vice President of Mozilla, Mike Schroepfer has given us the roadmap on Firefox plans to conquer the mobile web browser market. The work is on and is running at full throttle, so you can expect a Mobile Firefox Web Browser anytime soon.

The core foundation for the Mobile Browser would be Mozilla 2 (think Firefox 4) which is currently in development. Starting with Mozilla 2 frameworks, mobile devices will be involved in the making of Mobile Firefox, to evaluate its performance, speed, memory footprint etc..

Christian Sejersen the former head of Openwave. a leader in mobile phone software has been hired by Mozilla to lead the Mobile Browser initiative.  Here is a small quote from the paper that Mike wrote,

We will ship a version of “Mobile Firefox” which can, among other things, run Firefox extensions on mobile devices and allow others to build rich applications via XUL.

This sums up the whole thing pretty much easily. I will be waiting for Mobile Firefox to do something very similar to what the desktop version did., simply revolutionize the Web Browsing experience.  As of now no details have been revealed as to when we can expect the Mobile version of Firefox.

I disagree with the comment about Firefox “revolutionizing the Web Browsing experience”, I do use Firefox regulalry for most of browsing and i also do use Flock. One of the main reasons that i use Firefox is because of its extensions, Firefox alone was never that much of an attraction to me. I would’nt say that firefox revolutionized Browsing experience , because if suddenly i need to stop using Firefox, i would not miss it that much and will continue on with IE , i will probably miss a few things related to the extensions, but will not have much problem. When you say revolutionize, i expect it to be something which i cant live without in my digital life.
