Mozilla has released the first release candidate of the Linux version of its "Fennec" mobile Firefox technology, called Firefox for Maemo. Available for Maemo devices like Nokia's N900 phone and older N810 Internet Tablet, the latest version of the mobile browser offers improved text rendering and adds hooks for add-on developers.
Mozilla announced its fifth beta for the Linux version of Fennec in April, followed by an alpha 3 version for the Windows Mobile version in September. Firefox for Maemo is optimized for the N900, but also supports other devices that run the open source, Debian Linux-based Maemo stack. (Mozilla has also released Fennec desktop versions of the release designed for Linux, Windows, and Mac operating systems...)
