Mozilla releases Firefox Mobile “Fennec” on HTC Touch Pro only

touchpro_fennec_jan272009If you have the HTC Touch Pro you can now download a pre-release of Mozilla’s Firefox Mobile browser “Fennec”. This is coined as a the first “Milestone Release” is not the finished product… but it’s always nice to see what the future holds for mobile browsing.

Mozilla’s Brad Lassey explains: “Our focus to this point has been to have a working, usable browser. To get there in a hurry we have punted in a few places, and I’d like to point a couple of them out. First is the update mechanism (both for the browser itself and for extensions). After installing this release, you will not be offered updates automatically, so please stay tuned for follow up releases. Also, we have disabled plug-in support. This is one of our high priority items going forward. Finally, as I mentioned before, there is no soft keyboard support. On an HTC Touch Pro, you’ll have to slide out the keyboard to enter a url.”
