Mozilla Launches Faster Mobile Phone Browser

Mozilla has announced it has launched a new Firefox browser for mobile phones that people will be able to download in the Google Play store.

The firm claims the new browser is a "dynamic" upgrade that will make surfing the net faster and easier to get where you want to go on the web.

According to the new Eideticker Canvas Benchmark, the new version of Firefox for Android is significantly faster than all other browsers.

It is able to go at speeds of 39.3 frames per second, while the next best - Opera Browser - reaches just 21.6 frames per second.

Earlier this year Mozilla confirmed it would be launching its own operating system entitled Boot to Gecko. It is hoped this will be unveiled in late 2012 or early 2013.

"Based on the same open technology platform as the desktop version of Firefox, Firefox for Android offers the highest level of privacy and security features in mobile browsing," a statement on the firm's blog added.
