Hands on: Fennec alpha 1 puts Firefox on your handheld

Mozilla has announced the availability of the first Mobile Firefox alpha release. The project, which is codenamed Fennec, aims to bring the desktop Firefox browsing experience to mobile devices like MIDs and phone handsets. This early alpha release delivers a compelling user interface and demonstrates the impressive scope of the browser’s potential on diminutive devices, but suffers from performance limitations and instability that reflect the need for significant refinement before it’s mature enough for mainstream adoption.
