Mozilla has released the first release candidate (RC1) of Firefox for Maemo, the Debian based platform developed by Nokia for smartphones and Internet Tablets. Fennec ‘Maemo’ is currently supported by Nokia N900 and N810. Users running Firefox for Maemo beta 5 will soon be prompted to update to the more stable release candidate.
Firefox for Maemo RC 1 is a well polished web browser, with better text rendering and new hooks for add-on developers.
Other features include;
Easy access to many search engines
View without obstructions
Instant Web site ID (“Larry”)
Clear private data
Customized security settings
Unbranded Fennec desktop builds for Windows, Mac, and Linux are also available – for those who do not have a Maemo device but want to give it a try.
