Firefox Mobile - Year's End 2008

Firefox Mobile - Year's End 2008. Mozilla has to work with wireless carriers before it can roll out its Firefox Mobile browser. But, that doesn’t mean that Mozilla will be held up in releasing their Firefox Mobile browser. The mobile web-browser is set for release by year’s end 2008.

“I think that some carriers will basically fight this kicking and screaming, and some will embrace it and move ahead quickly,” said Christian Sejersen, head of Mozilla’s mobile engineering group in Copenhagen. Hopefully, more carriers will embrace their new fate, and bank on higher data revenues from opening up their “walled gardens.

“There’s a lot of room for improvement in the mobile browser space. Incumbents like Apple, Nokia, and Opera might have a head start, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no room for new players. “Somebody needs to come in from the side and give everybody a kick,” Sejersen said. “I think the iPhone has done it … but I still think there’s more than can be done to make [mobile browsing] easier.
