    Firefox Tablet Version Nightly Build

    have any of you guys/gals tried this yet?

    Firefox Nightly Builds/

    you can download the Android version directly to your Xoom. i am super impressed with the interface and speed of this version, it is way better than the current Firefox market version (including beta). it also supports bookmark synch on the Xoom (which Opera does not).

    i haven't seen any discussion on this browser option yet, so i just thought i'd mention it here...

    It's a step in the right direction, still lags well behind a lot of browsers (yes, I know it's a nightly build).

    Too much checkerboard, nowhere near as fast as Opera Mobile, no text reflow on the pinch to zoom, the text has to adjust its quality when zooming in and out.

    Like I said, it's a step in the right direction but way behind the likes of Opera.

    man, you guys are really fussy

    you can't make the tabs smaller in landscape mode, but the tabs move to the top if you rotate to portrait.

    it does remember me on websites, might check the cookie options in settings, i find the Tapatalk notices annoying but all my other browsers do that too.

    it does have some text reflow capability (but slow), there is an option in the settings.

    nope, still no flash.

    and nope, it's definitely not as smooth and fast as Opera, but Firefox synch works perfectly - having to manually enter all my bookmarks into Opera just to use it is not an option for me.

    I don't think we're being fussy asking for the browser to work half as good as the ones out there, and it's not like Mozilla have only just started, they've been designing Firefox for the mobile for a year or two now.

    There's some browsers out there that do twice as better a job than Firefox with less resources.
