Firefox for Android Includes Open Source Fonts and HTML5 improvements

Firefox for Android comes with the custom, open source fonts Charis and Open Sans to make the Web more beautiful and easier to read on your small screen. The Web is made up almost entirely of text and sometimes reading text can be difficult on small phone and tablet screens. These new fonts will replace the three available Android default fonts to enable a more visually appealing and clear reading experience on the Web. The difference is subtle, but beautiful.

Firefox for Android includes HTML5 compatibility improvements as tested on, the leading industry HTML5 compliance test. Firefox Firefox scores 421 and 14 bonus points (out of a total of 500).

Thanks to the hard work of the many Mozillians who contribute to building the best mobile browser, Firefox for Android now has an average rating of 4.5 stars in the Google Play Store. Whoo-hoo!
