Firefox For Mobile Is Now Available On Maemo!

We’ve been pining for it for so long, and after the long wait, Mozilla has officially announced that Firefox is now available for Nokia’s Maemo platform. This means that all you Nokia N900 owners out there can have Firefox on your N900. If you’re wondering what makes Firefox for mobile different from the usual third-party browser that you cram on your cell phone, check out some of the features, such as:

  • Awesome Bar – Go to your favorite sites in just a couple of keystrokes with intelligent and personalized searching
  • Weave Sync – Sync your Firefox tabs, history, bookmarks and passwords between your desktop and mobile device for a seamless browsing experience
  • Add-ons – Customize your Firefox by adding small pieces of functionality, like games and news readers, that help make the mobile Web browser your own
  • Location-Aware Browsing – Get maps and information relevant to your location
  • Tabbed browsing – View open tabs as thumbnails to easily identify and select the Web page you’d like to go to next
  • Safe Browsing – Get an Instant Web Site ID and easily access and edit security settings
  • Available in more than 30 languages and counting

The Add-ons support in particular might be a game changer. After all, it certainly is a big contributing factor to Firefox’s popularity today.
