Firefox comes to Android tablets

The Mozilla Foundation is pressing hard with mobile Firefox efforts; the Android tablet edition sounds very tasty. Firefox has been my browser of choice for years, and I'm just about to try out a new Android tablet -- looking forward to seeing how they get along.


  1. I used to be an unwavering supporter of Firefox until it started stuttering during every video I watched on youtube.  So I started watching videos in Chrome but when I’m low on memory the Chrome tabs all start failing, now I’m back to Safari, like a chump.  I want Firefox and my lovely adblocker back, but i get the impression it’s become a bit bloated and unyeilding.

  2. FireFox nowadays has issues. I mean when they post a new “major” version each month (what’s it up to now 6? Is 7 due soon?) then that wreaks of lack of confidence. It’s also slow from a web animation point of view; jQuery runs like crap on FireFox no matter how much optimization there is. Safari or Chrome is the best way to go nowadays.

  3. I don’t want to be one of THOSE people but isn’t the Lenovo tablet leveraging its particular grade of DRM? Incongruous!

  4. I’m actually excited by the stylus – I’d like to be able to draw diagrams and things with it.

    I even went so far as to ask Lenovo customer support via their online chat to see if their new tablet had an open boot loader (e.g., but they didn’t quite get what I was asking about and claimed that it had no bootloader at all.
     I’ll keep waiting until I get more information about it, but I’m also very aware that the Tegra 3/Kal-El tablets with quad-core processors are very close to being released and will probably just keep waiting until then.
