    I tested this yesterday on my Galasy S. it Force Closed twice and is not that great at the moment. It looks like it has potential when a stable release comes out however.

    Thanks but no thanks Firefox is a bloated mess. It need 40MB of flash!!! Opera does the same in 1MB. It's the same story on the desktop, with Opera being 10x better than Firefox and needing much less resources.

    Opera is a mature, stable release.
    This is the first public beta of Firefox Mobile.

    It has some nice features, but is very slow to start up and load pages at the moment.

    Opera Mobile, incidentally, wouldn't run stable for more than a few pages on my Desire.
