Firefox Aurora for Android
As part of the new fast release system that Mozilla adopted for their mobile browser, a new version of Firefox for Android was made available for download in the Aurora channel.
The new Firefox Aurora for Android paves the way towards the release of Firefox 8 on Android, and brings along a series of enhancements and features aimed at making the mobile browsing more secure.
The development team behind the application announced that those who will choose to download and install the new application release will be able to enjoy a series of new experimental features on their devices.
Firefox Aurora for Android brings forth features like:
Master Password Support (#mobilemasterpassword): The Master Password Support feature helps users encrypt saved usernames and passwords for better security. Users only need one master password
Add Bookmarks to Your Home Screen: Users can now bookmark any website and add it to their Android Home Screen. From the Home Screen, the user can launch the bookmarked website with one click.
Those who would like to activate Master Password Support on Android will have to go to Preferences and select the ‘Use Master Password’ check box for that.
Users who have the previous Aurora flavor of Firefox for Android installed on their devices will receive a notification on the availability of the new application release, the team behind the application notes.
Those who will chose to try out the latest version of Firefox Aurora for Android should consider providing feedback on the experience they receive from the application, so that more improvements will be added into the mix.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the Aurora flavor of Firefox for Android is accompanied by a Beta release, and that a final flavor of the mobile browser was made available for download as well, both listed in the Android Market at the moment.
