Pre-Alpha Test This: Firefox for Android
As outlined in the Mozilla wiki, the app is at a very early stage of development and still needs lots of work. But it is working okay for a pre-Alpha build. If you want to know what you’re in for, check the wiki for the list of known bugs.
The developers haven’t set a date for the first release but they hope to have it ready for the end of 2010. To speed up things, you can help them by testing the app and reporting any bugs to their support forum. Firefox for Android does not currently support multi-touch zoom but it will in future builds.
