Mozilla: Firefox mobile is coming soon

Firefox Mobile S60Mozilla has confirmed, through CEO Mitchell Baker, that developers are working on a mobile version of the uber-popular Firefox browser. The “Firefox Mobile” browser aims to bring the full, desktop experience that users of Firefox already enjoy, to the mobile arena.

This is a long-term project and Mozilla is working ot ensure that the customizability of Firefox, as well as the full web-browsing experience, will carry over to the mobile platform.

APC Magazine has an intriguing interview with Mozilla Foundation CEO Mitchell Baker on the state of mobile web browsers and Mozilla’s plans to develop a mobile version of Firefox.

Baker says developers are working on a mobile browser, but says it’s a long term goal and nothing users should expect to see anytime soon.

While the Minimo project is based on Mozilla, it isn’t an official product and it’s still a few (dozen) steps behind Opera Mobile when it comes to speed and performance.

Baker says some of the things people like most about Firefox are add-ons and the ability to customize the browser, which are things Mozilla would want to bring to a mobile version. One of the main challenges is bringing the full web experience to a small screen. An experiment, called Joey, is currently underway to look at ways to deliver information to mobile devices. It’ll be interesting to see how a mobile version of Firefox would stack up to Opera Moile, which already includes tabbed browsing, and even some AJAX support.

If you want to buy real estate, you will have to receive the loans. Moreover, my brother all the time takes a college loan, which seems to be really rapid.
