Today, Mozilla has made available for download a new flavor of its Android mobile browser, namely Firefox for Android 10.0.2.
We have managed to find the changelog for the new browser version, so have a look at it below.
There are no release notes attached to the new app flavor
, but it appears that it might include a series of security fixes for issues that have been discovered to plague previous flavors of the app.
Some of those who have downloaded and installed the new app release
also say that is delivers a series of performance improvements.
Recently, Mozilla has made available for Android users the Firefox 10.0.2 version of the browser, after releasing the stable Firefox 10 iteration
at the beginning of this month.
Before the end of the month, the company will make a new version of its Android app available for the general public, one that sports a Native UI, with increased performance.
According to the changelog
published on Mozilla's servers, the new 10.0.2 flavor of the mobile browser brings along a security fix indeed, along with a series of other enhancements.
The release notes for Firefox for Android 10.0.2 include: - Security fixes (info on them can be found here)
- Anti-Aliasing for WebGL is now implemented (see bug 615976)
- Accelerated layers are now supported via OpenGL ES
- It's now even easier to set up Firefox Sync - see the "Set up Sync" link on the home tab
- New <bdi> element for bi-directional text isolation, along with supporting CSS properties (see bugs 613149 and 662288)
- We've added IndexedDB APIs to more closely match the specification
- There is an extremely rare case where the browser may become unable to load web pages or close tabs
The new browser iteration arrives with a series of unresolved issues as well, but they should have little impact on user experience (although the issue with Adobe Flash and other plugin support hasn’t been fixed yet). Download Firefox for Android 10.0.2
