Default Firefox (Mozilla) Browser for Mobile Phones

Please Login to Remove!

I came across a few articles that date back to '04 that have talk of a mobile version of Firefox. Does anybody have info that expands on this possibility. Opera's good, but I'd rather keep my firefox on the go.



Minimo; Firefox like browser for your mobile

Would be pretty awesome to have a mini firefox on my Pearl. Why make one windows based but not for BB! *insert sad face here*

I would love to see a version for BB as I am a huge fan of all of Mozilla's projects. Hopefully sometime soon!

I only use firefox on my computer at home.. i think the Opera mini is a good alternative. It does ALMOST everything I wish the BB Browser did.

DANG - Firefox on my BB - that would be nice. It would be even nicer if it would display the full HTML and you could zoom in / zoom out to see more of the page vs. squishing it - IMO

When I used to have a Sidekick 2, they used Mozilla browser which is similar to Firefox.

I don't know what version they are using now for the Sidekick 3 though.
