Firefox for Android now available for ARMv6

Sunday, November 25th 2012. | Android Application, Android News, Android Software

Mozilla announced the availability of its Firefox for Android browser for a slew of new devices including the HTC Status, HTC ChaCha, Samsung Galaxy Ace, Motorola Fire XT, LG Optimus Q and many more.

Previously, Mozilla’s mobile browser only supported devices utilizing an ARMv7 processor. The company has now opened up the software to support ARMv6 architecture, meaning another 50 percent of the world’s entire fleet of Android devices can now download and run Firefox for Android.

While this may not seem like a significant milestone, Mozilla believes otherwise, claiming that “this is an important step toward making the open Web free to all.”
