Firefox for Android Beta Is Now Available for Download and Testing

Firefox for Android Beta adds new accessibility features and more ways to view videos to deliver the best mobile Web experience to more people around the world.

Firefox for Android Beta integrates seamlessly with TalkBack, the Android screen reader, with no need for additional configuration or installations.

In this beta, we also support advanced accessibility features recently introduced to the latest versions of Android, including Explore by Touch and Gesture Navigation. Explore by Touch is an Android platform feature that allows the visually impaired to browse the Web more easily. When enabled, you can drag your finger across the screen and your device will provide you with feedback through speech, sounds and vibrations. Gesture Navigation builds on top of Android platform features to allow the visually impaired to use speech output to quickly search a page for certain elements.

Firefox for Android Beta also supports the H.264 video format to let you watch more video content and make browsing on video heavy sites even easier.
