Mozilla's mobile browser goes into beta

Mozilla releases first beta candidate of its mobile browser 'Fennec'

Mozilla's mobile browser 'Fennec' reaches stage one of the beta test phase today, with a release candidate now available that will work on Nokia N810 tablets, as well as Windows, Mac and Linux desktop emulators.

Fennec's Tracemonkey-backed JavaScript offers better support for third party add-ons, gestures and no-button browsing, all of which sound pretty impressive.

Have that, Opera!

We'll be sure to tell you more about how these actually work when we get an opportunity for a hands on with Mozilla's latest.
