Mozilla already announced that it was working on a Firefox for Android mobile browser, and now the first early build of the application has been compiled and released into the wild for the Motorola Droid. This is not an official build, but it is reportedly working on the high-end device from Motorola, and the videos embedded at the bottom of this article will show you exactly that.
This early version of Firefox for Android has been reportedly compiled by a member of the Android Forums, who also delivered the video showing the browser running on the Motorola Droid. Those willing to give the software solution a try will find bookmark manager, history, and even add-on support in the package, while other menus will appear when swiping the screen to see the navigation controls.
According to some of those who already tried out the solution, it needs about 41 MB of internal storage, which is quite a lot. Those interested in it will find more info on the installer here. However, we should point out that this is not an official release of the application and that things might not work as smooth as expected, as the guys over at xda-developers note. Moreover, it seems that it won't work on other handsets than the Motorola Droid, even if some managed to install it on Nexus One too.
At the same time, we should mention that this is only an early build of the application, and installing it on the phone might result in certain issues. Since Mozilla announced that an alpha version of Firefox for Android was only a few months away and that they were working on delivering the first beta version before the end of the year, one might consider waiting for an official release before trying this version. In the meantime, take a look at the screenshots and videos below to learn a few more details on the matter.
