Included in this new release is Firefox Sync, a sister that pulls all your desktop bookmarks, browsing history, open tabs, form data, and passwords to your mobile version, back to your desktop version, and back and forth again forever into infinity! This means you’ll only have to log into YouTube or Facebook in one place and you’ll be good to go anywhere you go! We’re happy there’s some HTML5 support in the mix, but sad to see a lack of Flash support. Surely this will be cooked up soon.
Oddly enough, this new version is also being offered up for Maemo, a Nokia software platform also made for mobile devices. Check out the big list of new items here in this official release, take a peek at that video, then check your download because if it’s not done by now, you’re not on a fast enough network – truth!
