Mozilla: Firefox 4 for Android to ship in a few weeks

Jeremy Kirk | Feb. 15, 2011
The Mozilla Foundation expects to release the final code for the Firefox 4 browser for Android mobile devices in a few weeks, with one more beta version to be released in the next week or so.

"You want to grab any device and have it log you onto a site quickly, if you want to buy something have it know your credit card details yet be secure," Sullivan said.

More broadly, Mozilla is going to accelerate its development schedule, Sullivan said. Its developers had aimed to release a major version of Firefox once a year.

"We're going to move to a more Web-like model where we are shipping more often," Sullivan said. "Firefox 5 will be a much quicker release cycle but it will have fewer features, but it will be more agile and more reactive to the issues that are facing the market."
