Firefox Mobile launches for N900

Maemo gets Firefox first

Mozilla this weekend slipped out its first completed version of Firefox Mobile. The new version works with Nokia's Maemo 5-based devices and is primarily intended for the N900. The open-source developers promise a browser more powerful than most others and give features that are closer to the desktop, including tabbed browsing, extensions and bookmark syncing through Weave. Support for add-ons lets the N900 play YouTube or use other components without ever having to leave the web.

Much of the standards support is the same as for desktop Firefox and includes HTML5.

Firefox is reaching other plat forms and is already in an alpha state for Windows Mobile, with development underway for Android. Software policy restrictions block versions for iPhone and BlackBerry, and there aren't any immediate plans to produce a Symbian port.
