The iPhone has Safari, Windows Mobile devices have IE Mobile, RIM has their own BlackBerry Web Browser, and Google has the Chrome browser. The mobile web browser battle is heating up, especially with Mozilla’s new mobile browser ‘Fennec‘ in Alpha.
Jay Sullivan from Mozilla has said that Fennec will not hit Android any time soon. Not until Google accepts programs that are not written in Java for Android. At the moment, Android does not support apps that run on the open-source OS without being written in Java. A bit dissapointing for Mozilla boosters, but you know Google will address this issue at some point. They would be foolish to ignore Mozilla and Fennec.
