Mozilla's Fennec mobile web browser has finally been made available for the Windows Mobile operating system.
The company issued a pre-alpha in February, but has now released the browser in its first official alpha.
"This is an early developer release intended for testing purposes only. We would like to invite interested Windows Mobile developers and users to join with Mozilla's developer and user community to help develop, test and refine the product."
Lassey explained that Fennec is now able to manage memory more efficiently, and that user interface controls are now totally CSS-based, allowing the development team to more easily adjust the interface according to the different screen sizes and resolutions of individual handsets.
This version of Fennec also supports Add-ons, which Lassey argued are " integral to promoting openness and innovation on the web".
"The look and feel will continue to evolve as we develop the product, but this release should give users a sense of the direction its going in," he said.
The current alpha of Fennec has been developed with the HTC Touch Pro device in mind, and it is not recommended for daily browsing tasks beause of performance problems, acording to Lassey.
Support for further devices will be added in the future, he said.
