Mozilla Releases Firefox 4 Beta For Android, Maemo

bbruun Re:Dolphin is the closest Firefox (128 comments)

I second that. Have used it since I was on Hero with Android 1.5 (no HD version) and now on my Desire. It works, is fast, has the needed customizations that are usefull for a browser on a mobile device, easy bookmarks and does flash ok to a degree - still have some issues, that seems to have stopped after the Adobe 10.1 flash update... Kudos to the Dolphin Browser developers for a great job !

Mozilla Releases Firefox 4 Beta For Android, Maemo

bbruun Re:Tried it and uninstalled it less than 5 min aft (128 comments)

Just saw a bug in my post above:
Click an Ajax link that updates a

and the browser returns to the top of the page - not optimal, but it didn't reset the zoom...

Should be:
Click an Ajax link that updates a <div> tag and the browser returns to the top of the page - not optimal, but it didn't reset the zoom...

Mozilla Releases Firefox 4 Beta For Android, Maemo

bbruun Tried it and uninstalled it less than 5 min after (128 comments)

I just tried to install it. Needed to clear some space from other applications, as FF4 beta for Andriod takes up 40+Mb - that is a huge amount for a mobile app, compared with eg Dolphin Browser HD at approx. 3½Mb.

Boot time (initial start of FF when not returning to it, but used a task killer) is as slow as booting my Ubuntu 10.04 desktop 64bit system with 8Gb RAM - not good.

Firefox does render a page nicely, without much difference from the desktop version, but renders it in fullscreen (entire page on screen).
No setting for "mobile view".
No easy setting for default zoom level. When following a link, the next page is rendered at the same fullscreen zoom, so new zoom is needed.
Click an Ajax link that updates a

and the browser returns to the top of the page - not optimal, but it didn't reset the zoom...

There aren't any customizations that are easily available, not enven enough to compare with a small fast browser like DB mentioned above or SkyFire. The general look/feel of FF for Android is a very basic app that should still be in alpha as the customization menu is very odd and not polished compared with other smaller and similar programs.
Mozilla, please don't make Android apps that divert from the way Android apps are supposed to do, use the menues, and respect the backbutton when pressed... aka kill your current download/render of a page if the backbutton is pressed, don't continue working on something that the user want's to stop.

My device is HTC Desire with latest HTC Android 2.2, so it is not an old G1 I'm using, though FF4 beta for Android feels like it is running on a G1.

How many processes are running on your desktop box?

bbruun Re:Just one (382 comments)

Should it not be the following to avoid system apps (you don't run your desktop as root, do you?)

ps xau | grep -v "^root" | wc -l
