    Still needs a lot of refining, well that's why it's still an alpha... but i see a bright future ahead of it, the sync works great

    Will definitely be the best browser on the market once all the kinks are worked out.

    Ahh the irony of signatures lines...

    1. Use the browser on your phone and visit the link.
    2. Click Download
    3. Click Save
    4. Once download is finished, use a file browser to find the file and click on it.
    5. Package installer will do the rest installing it just like a normal app

    Note--Third party apps must be enabled for that to work!

    Also this post is from nearly two months ago. They're still on the same Alpha1 version. Just like earlier attempts at making firefox mobile for other OS's, they put out an alpha and then it just sits there until finally being deleted and forgotten about!

    doesnt work..
    I asked how do I install it because the download link is a .install not a .apk

    I googled .install but nothing about how to use it on android.

    the .install is for the n900
    you need to go into the site using YOUR PHONE'S BROWSER and make sure you didn't change the user agent to desktop or iphone or anything
    you should be able to download the apk then

    I just did , it was pretty laggy , but had some potential
    looked pretty much like dolphin HD (in some part) but lately dolphin was lagging pretty much or me so I uninstalled it and went back to stock browser
    waiting for a stable fennec

    Have you tried Opera? My Opera browser is faster than any of the other browsers I have tried. Its not as complete as dolphin, but I have traded some of the functionality for speed.

    I have, and I assume you mean Opera mini
    on the first test it wasn't "too" fast , I mean I wasn't that impressed by the speed [comparing to the stock] but the problem is that it didn't support arabic , and that's important for me
    maybe because they use their own fonts and not the phone's font

    I've been trying to load this on my Aria, but unfortunately AT&T doesnt allow OTA's on 2.1 and I have not updated to 2.2 just yet, however I have been side loading everything using HTC Sync v 3.0.5372... no luck... looks like I might have to load the new 2.2 anyways...

    Haven't used it for much yet, but I downloaded the apk with my phone (Captivate) and used the Sideload Wonder Machine to perform the install. Worked fine.
