Mozilla has just released Firefox 17 for Android. With this release, Mozilla is finally bringing support for ARMv6-based Android handsets which was pending for long.
Mozilla has decided to delay the release of Firefox for Android on ARMv6 platform. Now, Mozilla team is targeting Firefox 17 for Android to support ARMv6-based phones and tablets.
Firefox on Android currently supports only ARMv7 platform, which means around 58% Android users even don’t have a compatible device for Firefox. Mozilla has addressed this issue now and support for ARMv6-based handsets is coming soon.
