Fennec Alpha hits Windows Mobile

Fennec Alpha hits Windows Mobile Mozilla has released the Alpha of their mobile browser dubbed Fennec for Windows Mobile phones.
According to Mobile Crunch, the updates are as follows:

* 3 months worth of bug fixes and performance upgrades.
* Fennec UI have been rebuilt entirely in CSS, allowing Mozilla to tweak the UI for different handsets without having to go in and change the hardcoding. This should make it a lot less complex to port Fennec to different screensizes and resolutions.
* Add-ons! Add-ons are an integral part of Firefox, and something much clamored for in its mobile spinoff. Add-ons wont jump directly over from Firefox, but users are already hard at work at creating them.

LOL He says, "first let me just switch here." Notice the massive lag time before the screen switches to landscape mode. I have the same phone minus the keypad, it's not any better.
