Firefox beta

For the past six months or so, Firefox aurora has been my browser of choice. Aurora was where the Mozilla crew was working on the native Android interface that removed almost all the horrible qualities of the "stable" Firefox. A couple of weeks ago, the native UI graduated into the Firefox beta channel, which makes it available for all Android users (aurora has to be side loaded).

The Beta is quick, looks good, and comes armed with Firefox's Sync, Awesome Bar, and extension ecosystem. The browser also has do-not-track support, and is the first Mozilla Android browser to come with Flash support.

For users of Gingerbread, install Firefox beta and love the speed and features that this browser offers. For extension freaks, you need look no further, either.
