Imagine having a Smartphone that only has one Internet browser! Quite a sad thought to be honest. My Nokia N900 happens to have three different browsers loaded at present. MicroB is the default browser and the one I use the most, as I find it to be the most efficient for loading large websites. Opera Mobile 10.1 beta loads quicker in certain circumstances and has an awesome bookmarking menu, while Firefox has an awesome sync option that allows me to take my PC browsing with me on my Nokia N900. Choice is a wonderful thing.
And on that topic there is a new version of Firefox 4. It’s beta version number 4.
You can download it here.
What features are you getting with this version?
