    And for a beta, this thing is fast. Looking forward to the official version..
    I think its faster than Skyfire.

    I haven't tried it yet. Like I said in the article, I have a lot of stuff on my phone already. And actually going through and deleting enough apps to free up and extra 12mb is gonna kill me a little inside.

    I was wanting to try this, but for some reason it just closes when its trying load.

    Hope its nice, but they are gonna have to work on the size of the file if they want to be the default browser on everyone's phone.

    I like the progress they are making but 12mb is very big for a smartphone app. As for the Blackberry not being able to support it, I was already aware of it when they launched the project, the reason being was said to be the fact that the BB is Java based and all of mozilla's programming is done in C++ and therefore incompatible.

    ...been there guys. That's one of the beauties of Android phones - memory and speed - and its the primary reason I switched. BB is easier to use imo but you can dl and try most anything you want to w Android. Hang in there.

    I DL'd it and tried to sync bookmarks, etc. but the "sync addon" is evidently not available for my device. I have to agree, even for and Android phone, 42.25mb is a little excessive for an application. It seems to work and it's fast but I would like to see the sync feature work with my p-c. Otherwise, I'll just use the very fast browser that came with the Incredible.
