Fennec second alpha

Mozilla developers have announced the second alpha of the Fennec browser for mobile devices. "While we focused much of the previous alpha on getting the user experience how we wanted," said Stuart Parmenter, manager of engineering. "We've spent much of the time since focused on improving performance." The update offers improved performance while panning, zooming, loading pages or starting the program. Touchscreen support has been added and the team has progressed compatibility with Windows Mobile and Symbian.

The second Fennec alpha is available for the Nokia N810 tablet running OS2008. The team has released a desktop version of the mobile browser that works on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, allowing extension developers to dabble with the program on a desktop computer.
