Desktop Version Of Firefox Running On Android

While Firefox Mobile (Fennec) is available for Nokia’s N900, folks who run Android (and every other mobile OS out there) will have to wait until Mozilla releases an official version for other platforms. Despite that, it seems that some folks have managed to get Firefox running an Android, and we’re not talking about the mobile version here, it’s the full desktop version! Of course, since it’s not an official port, there are still some problems that the developer is still facing, such as the keyboard not working properly, and the browser not being able to handle heavy-duty work. But that certainly doesn’t take anything away from this achievement. There isn’t any alpha release of this port just yet, but it’ll be interesting to see how this development goes. Would you rather use the full desktop version on your phone, or do you think a mobile-optimized version would suit you better?
