Fennec, the codename for the Firefox browser on Android devices has had it’s named changed from Fennec 2.0 to Fennec 4.0 to keep it more in line with the Desktop version of the browser. Currently in alpha, it is still being updated nightly and the “web rendering engines used in both browsers are the same.”

Upon release, Fennec will be named “Firefox 4 for Android and Nokia N900.” The simple name change will prevent the potential confusion Mozilla marketing will face when people may be confused why the mobile version is only 2.x, but the desktop version is 4.x.
