Mozilla teases something BIG coming to Firefox next week

The team behind Firefox has taken to Twitter this evening to tease us that something "BIG" is coming to Android next week and that we should stay tuned. Obviously this is probably some new update or improvement to the Firefox web browser for Android. They didn't reveal anything in their teaser so it looks like we'll just have to wait and see.

Android malware spreads through infected websites

It's interesting to watch the security landscape unfold on a new platform like Android, in a macabre sort of way. On the one hand we have newfangled attacks that use relatively modern ways of stealing money or information, like phony text message trojans. On the other we've got old-school malware that spreads through modified versions of popular software. Now there's a new trick up malicious programmers' sleeves, though it's only new to Android: spreading malware through infected websites.

Dolphin Browser HD 8.0 update redesigns UI

Even with a growing number of browser available on the Google Play Store, Dolphin Browser HD remains a favorite for power users, including those of us here at Android Community. The latest update adds a bevvy of new features, mostly surrounding Dolphin's evolving user interface. The biggest change is a new menu bar that slims down the old double-row interface and hides a lot of the less immediate menu options behind more stylish icons, allowing users to keep an eye on more of the web window at once. You can download it for free in the Google Play Store.

Opera Mobile beta gets mobile extension support

Mobile browsers are a dime a dozen on Android - not even that, since most are actually free. But outside Dolphin Browser HD and Mozilla's Firefox Mobile, not many allow you to expand the browser's capabilities with extensions like desktop browsers can. Browser old-timer Opera has just published an experimental release of Opera Mobile (not to be confused with Opera Mini) with support for browser extensions, as well as publishing APIs and guidelines for would-be developers. You can download the experimental build at Opera's developer blog.
