  1. Mozilla has released Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo. You can get the new version from the Android Market to test on your Android device or go to Firefox.com/Mobile to get it in on your Nokia Maemo device. The final build is available in more than 10 languages on a list of supported devices.

    And Firefox 4's market share is on the rise again.

    Three times faster than the stock browser! That must also blow Safari on the iPhone out of the water too as it is supposedly the same speed. If this is true I am extremely impressed.

    Is there a reason why fire fox 4 is not for iOS? Does apple not want it or just hasn't been developed yet?

    In my opinion Firefox users do not own Apple products like iPads or iPhones, nor Mozilla does not care much about Apple's OS

    Both of these are probably collectively true.

    Firefox is actually slower than the native browser on my Archos 101 Android 2.2 tablet. The native browser and Opera Mobile fly right through while Firefox kind of hangs back for two or three seconds.

    Collectively, maybe. I myself am a Firefox user for many years and I own both an an iPhone and an Android smartphone. The reason why Firefox hasn't appeared may be due to Apple's restrictive entry policies (remember VLC media player?)
