    from the aritcle in the link above......

    Because it is such an early release and it still has bugs, it can cause Android phones to crash, requiring a reboot. Memory usage is not yet optimized, links from other apps can

    ha...yah man...why would you!? if its not broken...don't fix it. sheesh, if you read the article it doesn't even run on android 1.5 and many hero users don't have rooted phones running 2.1! not to mention it says that it barely runs on the nexus one processor.

    meh...

    I am very cautious of early betas, and will only run alphas of my own code... Regardless of platform.

    Why in the world would anyone run a pre-alpha of anything other than their own code for initial debugging?

    I'm running Fresh 2.0d, Firefox load and shows on the screen for about 1 sec then closes. It has a long way to go. :( But it's on the way and I'm looking forward to using it someday.

    Looks like this is just a hint at the future. They got concept in the works and progress being made so perhaps this is something we can look forward to using on our next phones (except for you guys who are nearing the switch already! :p)

    Same here, love Firefox on my PC but will wait for a clean and non-buggy release. Till then, Dolphin works fine for me.

    I tested it on my Desire and have to say this app has great oppurtunities. (especially the fact you're able to install plugins appeals to me :))
    The sad part is that this version takes 32 MB of space on my phone :'(
    And I really miss the multitouch-zoom
    But still an great app, I hope official or a b
