No Fennec for Android!

The recently announced Firefox web browser Fennec, which is just in to its alpha version, can’t be developed for Android. Said Jay Sullivan, the Vice-President for mobile at Mozilla, that according to the Google’s requirements, all the apps listed on the Android Market must be developed only in Java where as Fennec uses AJAX. He admitted that if Google allowed to run apps on the operating system with out the need to be written in Java, then they would be interested in developing the Fennec for Android.

The Mozillaites are currently also involved in a research project christened the Weave, that allows us to remotely access our desktop browser’s browsing history, bookmarks, and other personalized settings. It also enables us to remotely share our data literally with the other users and even third parties.
