Fennec milestone release for the HTC Touch Pro

image                   Mozilla have released what they call a Milestone version of the Fennec browser which is being touted as a serious contender to the Safari Mobile browser. Just as the leaked release that we saw a few weeks back, this is only for the HTC Touch Pro and again we are hearing reports of it being fairly unstable / unusable. More info and a download link after the break

warning: This is a "Milestone Release" and is not the finished product. As Mozilla’s Brad Lassey explains:

Our focus to this point has been to have a working, usable browser. To get there in a hurry we have punted in a few places, and I’d like to point a couple of them out. First is the update mechanism (both for the browser itself and for extensions). After installing this release, you will not be offered updates automatically, so please stay tuned for follow up releases. Also, we have disabled plug-in support. This is one of our high priority items going forward. Finally, as I mentioned before, there is no soft keyboard support. On an HTC Touch Pro, you’ll have to slide out the keyboard to enter a url.

You can download the cab file here and remember backup your device before playing with the software
