A new flavor of the Firefox Beta browser is now available for download for the owners of Android-based devices, with appealing enhancements packed inside, including per-tab private browsing, a feature that was announced at the beginning of the year.

Furthermore, the new app release brings along support for H.264/AAC/MP3 hardware decoders for devices running under Gingerbread and Honeycomb flavors of Google’s mobile operating system, along with customizable Top Sites in about:home.

Another appealing change in the new app release is the support for devices with 384MB of RAM and QVGA displays, which should make the browser available for more users.

Additionally, Mozilla notes that <canvas> now supports blend modes in the new release, and that there are various <audio> and <video> improvements for users to enjoy. There is also getUserMedia implemented for web access to the user's camera and microphone (with user permission).
