If you’re sick of the built-in Android browser or you just enjoy trying new ones, then I have good news for you.  The latest beta of Firefox Mobile was released today. The changelog for the new beta  is quite impressive, but some of the more notable improvements are:

  • Reduced install size by 60% on Android
  • Page loads are now around 40% faster than in beta 1
  • Battery usage has been reduced
  • Reduced memory footprint
  • The native Android sharing system is now used when you share a link
  • You can now undo closing a tab
  • Faster and more accurate multitouch zoom
  • Geolocation now works on Android

Pretty solid list of improvements if you ask me. Keep on reading past the break for a download link as well as the full changelog.
