Since more and more people access the Internet through their smartphones and tablets, mobile browsers are now in a race to capture the users’ loyalty. While most people prefer the ubiquitous Chrome or Opera or even their smartphones’ built-in browser (although why you would do that is a mystery), the Firefox for Android has been making strides to vastly improve its mobile browser. The latest update brings more customizable features and better access to clear history.
Chrome isn't the only one getting a Beta makeover. Mozilla has just revealed the latest version of Firefox Beta for Android and it has two new features that are definitely boast-worthy.

ZTE has been showing a Firefox OS phone here at MWC. The handset is the ZTE Open C, and it will bring a 4-inch WVGA display size and a variety of colors. The handset isn't sporting the highest of specs but that is more about the market this device is headed than anything else.
Almost everyone these days know about browsing the web, but not all of those are actualy familiar with a web browser. For that subset of web surfers, Mozilla is introducing the Directory Tiles initiative to give them a clue by suggesting sites that have paid to be in the spotlight.
Specs for the Geeksphone Revolution were confirmed earlier in the month. There was also some talk about the pricing and availability, however those weren't being confirmed at the time.

Just on the heels of coming out of beta, EverythingMe is now making news again but this time with a different visage. Mozilla and the Israeli startup has just revealed Firefox Launcher, which, for all intents and purpose, is practically the same smart launcher.
