Firefox Now Uses Less Memory, Android Version Optimized For Tablets


Once again Mozilla claims it has made Firefox Browser faster by reducing memory usage when browsing with certain add-ons.

Seperately, Mozilla has released a redesigned Firefox for Android for tablet devices.

Starting from the desktop version, the latest Firefox adds new features for developers, with a fasterJavaScript Debugger and a built-in tool that gives greater insight into Web application code. Developers can also use the JavaScript Debugger over a local network to remotely debug apps running on Firefox for Android, simplifying mobile Web development.

Firefox also introduces support for compressed textures, allowing game developers to take full advantage of video memory to build graphics-heavy games without losing performance. Firefox makes animations smoother with an improved JavaScript engine and enhancements to WebGL.

Mozilla'a redesigned Firefox for Android for tablet devices is also available for download in the Google Play store. The same improvements that made Firefox for Android phone fast are now available for tablets. Mozilla says the new browser offers quicker startups, page load times, panning and zooming.

Firefox for Android includes a new Awesome Screen that delivers all of your browsing history, boomarks, passwords and form data. You can also import your personalized Firefox experience with Firefox Sync.

Firefox for Android supports Flash for Honeycomb tablet devices.

To make browsing on your mobile phone or tablet even easier, Firefox for Android lets you switch between the desktop and mobile version of a website by selecting "Request Desktop Site" from the browser Menu.

Based on the same open technology platform as the desktop version of Firefox, Firefox for Android ships with high level of privacy and security features in mobile browsing. Firefox protects your security with features like Do Not Track, Master Password, HTTP Strict Transport Security and more.

New HTML5 capabilities in Firefox for Android enable developers to create rich Web apps and websites based on HTML5, JavaScript, CSS and other open Web standards. As the advocate for the Web, Mozilla exposes new Web APIs and submits them to standards groups to move the Web forward as a platform. Among the standards that Mozilla helped build are Camera API, Vibration API, Mobile Connection API, Battery Status API, Screen Orientation API and Geolocation API.
