Firefox for Android Beta tests out browser casting feature

There are still people who use Firefox as their browser on both desktops and mobiles, although that percentage is growing smaller and smaller by the year. Last year (2013), that percentage was 20.09%, if the guys at Statcounter are to be believed.* But that is not stopping Mozilla from continuing to develop the Android version of their browser, now coming up with a “mirroring” feature that enables devices to cast a tab of the browser to a Chromecast or Miracast streaming device.

Watch videos from Firefox for Android on your TV

Sending content from any mobile device to your TV is possible with Chromecast or Roku. Another way is to use Firefox for Android to view content from your smartphone or tablet straight to your TV as long as they are supported.

Firefox for Android Beta now lets you cast videos from websites

It’s not just downloaded videos or those that you get from subscription streaming services like Netflix that you sometimes want to show on a second screen, most likely a TV screen. Sometimes, you see something on your web browser that you think would be better seen on a larger screen. Firefox for Android Beta is now road-testing a new feature that will let you do just that, cast videos through your Roku or Chromecast onto another screen.

Firefox Mobile update: customizable language, home screen

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.

Firefox Beta gets new tab panels, easy language switch

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. Users can now customize new tab pages with their choice of panels and can now switch the browser's language on the fly without having to change the entire device's language settings.

Firefox OS dongle may just be Mozilla’s Chromecast-killer

There has been a lot of mixed reaction on Google’s Chromecast streaming stick, which allows certain Chrome and mobile apps to stream video to a TV screen – mainly because it is so selective in which apps and devices are able to use it. But Mozilla, the longtime browser rival of Google, may be working on a streaming device project as well, or at least allowing the use of Firefox OS, as seen in a tweet of a prototype device.

Firefox for Android update adds more customization options

The latest Firefox for Android update has arrived in the Google Play Store this morning. The focus here appears to be on customization with Mozilla touting a new home screen and new sharing features. There are a handful of changes this time around, however it seems the most important may be dealing with Firefox Accounts and Firefox Sync.
