Firefox! On your smartphone! Those are the two most pertinent details from this CNet report. They talked to Mozilla mobile VP Jay Sullivan, who informed them that Firefox mobile is almost ready to launch. There should be a release candidate out next week, and a final version out within the month. The first mobile device to get Firefox will be the Nokia N900, but a wider release won't be too far behind. In 2010 we can also look forward to seeing Firefox mobile gain multitouch support, haptic feedback support, camera control, better multitasking, support for Mozilla's JetPack, and integration of Weave software. Javascript will get faster, and WebGL support is coming as well. Firefox mobile is being billed as an extremely powerful browser. Mozilla designed it for mid-to-high-end smartphones and Sullivan describes it as "almost an operating system". We look forward to putting it through its paces in a few weeks.
