Mozilla mobile browser gets updated The new Mozilla Fennec browser for mobile devices has been updated to a second alpha, announced the developers of the browser today.
"While we focused much of the previous alpha on getting the user experience how we wanted," added Stuart Parmenter, manager of engineering. "Weve spent much of the time since focused on improving performance."

The update should improve "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."

So far the alpha is available only on one phone, the Nokia N810 tablet running OS2008 but curious users can download the browser to test on their Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.

I thought N810 is PDA, and you cannot call or get calls with it.. So how it is a phone? Because Nokia made it?

I would go for Opera mini (at least for now) since it supports nearly all phones.

Hopefully they'll release for the iphone and include features such as copy and paste, which the iphone's Safari browser is still lacking.
