Mozilla upgrades Fennec

Mozilla is targeting developers with an upgraded alpha version of its mobile browser.
Fennec – which takes its name from a small desert fox – is a zooming browser that features bookmarks, a smart URL bar, popup blocker and tabbed browsing. The Mountain View, Calif.-based company also released desktop versions of the offering for Windows, OS X and Linux in an effort to spur development.
“While we focused much of the previous alpha on getting the user experience we wanted, we’ve spent much of the time since focused on improving performance,” according to a post on the company’s site. “We’ve made major strides improving startup performance, panning and zooming performance, and responsiveness while pages are loading. We’ve refactored a significant amount of the front-end code resulting in substantial speed improvements as well as providing a much better base for extension authors to build upon.”
Mozilla unveiled an alpha version of Fennec two months ago.
