Fennec, the mobile version of Mozilla's Firefox web browser has been made available in beta.
According to Mozilla, Fennec, whic is only currently available on Nokia N810 internet tablets www.nokia.co.uk , has been optimised to offer faster zooming and smoother panning.
"We've done heavy optimisations to our frontend code and made a number of optimisations to the platform," said Mozilla developer Stuart Parmenter in a blog.
"We've also been able to improve startup performance by reducing a good bit of unnecessary work."
"A number of performance hotspots have been identified that we'll continue to focus on until we ship final - in fact, we have fixed number of issues already for the next beta. One of our main focuses for the next milestone will be on polishing the user interface - areas like the extension manager will get a face lift and we'll start working more on some of the usability issues people have reported," added Parmenter.
