Firefox for Android Beta
Firefox for Android Beta is ready for download and testing. The latest update to Firefox for Android Beta helps users share content quickly and easily.
- Support for WebRTC: Firefox for Android Beta includes WebRTC components that enable developers to easily integrate real-time communications across the Web. The components DataChannels, PeerConnection and GetUserMedia enable the Web with Real Time Communication capabilities including video calls and file-sharing between browsers. Developers can now begin to experiment with WebRTC experiences on Firefox for Android.
- New and improved Reader & Reading List:
- The updated Reader includes a redesigned formatting menu that allows users to toggle between Serif and San-serif fonts.
- In Reader, Firefox for Android Beta can automatically switch to “dark mode” (dark text on a light background) or “light mode” (light text on a dark background) depending on the level of light in the room. Users can also manually switch between these states.
- Users can now long-tap the reader icon to quickly add an article to their Reading List without switching to Reader first. All Reading Lists can be accessed offline.
- Firefox now makes it clear when Reader is on or off by changing the URL bar to orange when Reader is on and grey when Reader is turned off.
- NFC Bump: Share Firefox tabs with another NFC-enabled Android phone by “bumping” them together. NFC must be powered “on.”
- Quickshare: Quickshare creates a space in the Share menu from a list of sharing services available on the user’s device. For example, email, SMS, social, etc.
- Firefox for Android Beta adds support for Catalan-Spanish, British-English and Swedish languages bringing a great Web experience to more than 24 languages.
Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac And Linux
- Browser Console: Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac and Linux includes an updated Browser Console for developers. The Browser Console allows developers to inspect the browser’s logs (rather than a content page’s logs) and is especially useful for Firefox Add-on developers. Developers can filter by log type (net, css, security, js, and misc. logging) or perform free text search through the logs. This replaces the existing Error Console.
