To all those Firefox fans out there also having an Android phone there is good news. Mozilla just announced the release of the Firefox 4 Beta 1 for Android. The app is called Fennec [I guess I recall talking about it ages back] and is available for download at the Mozilla Site, which should ensure that it is official [I get a lot of emails and questions about an app being official or not]. You can download Firefox 4 Beta 1 here and take your Firefox anywhere.
