Hands-on: Mozilla Fennec beta offers performance, features

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has announced the first official beta release of its mobile Firefox 
| web browser, codenamed Fennec. The release includes significant performance 
| improvements that speed up rendering and increase the responsiveness of the 
| user interface.   
| The Fennec project was first launched in 2007 when Mozilla established its 
| new mobile team. They aimed to bring the full functionality of the Firefox 
| web browser, including support for extensions, to handheld devices.   
| [...]
| It's very clear that Mozilla has done much more than bring its rendering 
| engine to handhelds. The Fennec project also provides the broader Firefox 
| ecosystem with its powerful support for extensibility and the potential for 
| leveraging XUL to build richer mobile user interfaces. These aspects set 
| Fennec apart from MicroB and other Gecko-based mobile browsers that are built 
| using native widget toolkits.     
| Fennec's use of XUL will offer some particularly intriguing advantages in the 
| area of theming. It will be trivially easy to reskin and adapt the user 
| interface to accommodate devices with all kinds of unique form factors.
