The so-called ‘Browser Wars’ have mainly focused on what’s happened on desktops, and while a clear winner might depend on your point of view, a clear loser is probably Internet Explorer. On mobile devices though, while there is a similar amount of choice, the browser you use is mostly determined by the operating system your mobile device uses. Android users probably use the built in Browser app more than any third party browser, Apple users of iDevices probably use Safari most, and so on.
If you’re a tablet user, however, and a Firefox fancier, then you’ll be happy to know that Firefox has been updated to version 15, which comes with tablet support in the main-release version. It’s been available in beta for awhile, but now the official app has tablet support as well.
Not only this — Mozilla advises they’ve made dramatic improvements to the overall design and performance of the application, to the point that they think tablet support is as delightful as the phone experience. Big claim. Of course, the update includes other things, such as better search-in-page, the ability to request desktop versions instead of mobile, and the ability to import bookmarks and history from the stock browser – neat!
Me personally? I still like the stock browser, but Chrome would be my second choice – but for those of you Firefox fans, this will be right up your alley. Enjoy!
