Following earlierconfirmation of June 17th as ‘Download Day’ for the Firefox 3 desktopbrowser, Mozilla has released a video outlining the latest developments in the Firefoxbrowser for mobile devices.

AzaRaskin, Mozilla's Head of User Experience, has posted this videowhich details where the company is at with Firefox on mobile.

TristanNitot, Mozilla’s European president, told TechRadar, "With all the improvements brought byFirefox 3 in terms of speed and memory consumption, our browsing engine, namedGecko, shows that it can run on small platforms suchas mobile devices, where the CPU is not as fast as a desktop's.

User Interface issue

Nitot adds: "Now there is another issueto tackle, which is the User Interface, because browsing on a small device,with a small screen and no mouse nor keyboard is really different. This is whatAza and others from the Labs and Mobile teamsare currently working on.

"I find this fascinating,and certainly hope that we'll be able to do in the mobile space what we areachieving on the desktop: bring a secure, fast and customizable browser tohundreds of million people in the world."

Staytuned for more on Firefox for mobiles as and when we get it.
