    Spent my morning researching and pulling the latest facts about Mobile Firefox. Turns out, it IS coming to Android (thanks to the release of Android NDK) but only after the WinMo and Maemo versions.

    It will support tabs, sync, HTML5, CSS, JS, SVG, Flash, geolocation, and a bunch of other really neat stuff.

    Here's the post: Meet Firefox For Mobile [Video + Feature Highlights + More Info]

    I read on this a couple of days ago, sounds good. I wonder if it will be better than the Opera Browser being released for Android.

    Will the same extensions that I use now for FF be able to be used on this?

    edit: never mind... I read the article..... Looks like they are trying to make them work.

    remember: extensions turn any old app into a living breathing killer app

    I Can not find a smoothe way to get my DT bookmarks into my Droid.

    Browser syncs to igoogle, but my safari subfolders appear as primary folders. Gives me a list of BM's a mile long.

    Opera syncs to my Opera account, but MY bookmarks are 3 clicks deep. Same with Dolphin.

    Bookmark Importer states it should do the job, but my Droid won't load my exported BM files for the app to see/import.

    Do you think my FF desktop bookmarks will sync to mobile FF?

    Or tell me: How do I get my DT BM's (that reads kinda gross....) into my droid in a funcitonal format?

    I think the Dolphin browser is the best so far. Seems a lot faster than the default one on my Eris.

    Using Fx as my default browser since before 1.0. But, I have used many schemes for bookmark synchronization. Manual sync, paid apps that synced between browsers on the same computer, manually uploading my bookmarks file t omy FTP server, etc.

    The best, I have found, is Weave. IMO it is the most robust, and it works - and it works well.

    If they make Fennec (if that is what they are still calling it) work with extensions on the DROID, my problem is over....mostly.

    I only have several thousand bookmarks.....

    It better!

    I have to have my firefox. Other browsers just browse the web but firefox is an internet workhouse.
