Firefox 10.0 for Google Android now available

Written by Jon Worrel

WebGL antialiasing, smoother scrolling and more

Mozilla Corporation has good news for avid users of Firefox for Google Android. Today, the corporation has released Firefox 10.0 for Android devices featuring plenty of improvements to overall stability and performance, including faster and easier setup and synchronization capabilities.

Unfortunately, the latest release still lacks official support for Adobe Flash Player, but makes up for this absence with native support for WebGL anti-aliasing. The new release also sports extremely smooth scrolling, accelerated layers in OpenGL ES and a new <bdi> HTML5 element for bi-directional text isolation.

Of course, many Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich users have already noticed that Google's latest stock browser seems to be doing a pretty good job of satisfying most casual Web browsing scenarios, certainly a major improvement over Android 3.0 Honeycomb's impotent and almost functionally useless stock browser. Nevertheless, Mozilla seems to be doing a very good job of holding its Android browser marketshare on tablets, with 5 to 10 million downloads of Firefox 10.0 since Tuesday morning.
