Firefox for Android introduces support for millions more devices, including the HTC Status, HTC ChaCha, Samsung Galaxy Ace, Motorola Fire XT and LG Optimus Q.

To date, Firefox for Android has supported phones running Android versions 2.2 and higher, but only on phones equipped with ARMv7 processors. Now, Firefox for Android supports a number of phones using ARMv6 processors.

At Mozilla, our mission is to bring the Web to as many people as we can. Given that roughly half of the nearly 500 million Android phones in use today run on ARMv6 architecture, this is an important step toward making the open Web free to all.

Firefox for Android also adds new accessibility features to make browsing the Web on a mobile phone easier for the visually impaired. Firefox for Android integrates seamlessly with TalkBack, the Android screen reader, with no need for additional configuration or installations.

Firefox also support advanced accessibility features recently introduced to Android, including Explore by Touch and Gesture Navigation. Explore by Touch is an Android feature that makes it easier for the visually impaired to browse the Web using speech output, sounds and vibrations.
