The browser wars have seen a strange resurgence in the mobile world, as each platform brings its own-branded browser (Safari for iOS, Chrome for Android, IE for Windows Phone), and competitors see this as a new opportunity to gain more relevance after the desktop arena begins to settle. Mozilla certainly seems to think so as it starts to tease some new features it's currently working on for its Android-based Firefox app.
For starters, private browsing. It should go without saying that whether you're looking for some—*ahem*—discrete fun, or just want to check out a site without storing any personal info, this is an absolute must. No word on when it will arrive, but it will.
Next up, customization! Firefox was one of the first browsers around to emphasize the ability to change or tweak just about anything in both the app's behavior and appearance. The latter is going to come in the form of themes, just like the desktop version. Additionally, the company wants to let you tweak what shows up on the start page.
Finally, broader device and language support are in the works, which is just fantastic news because I'm really not sure which there are more of in the world now: models of Android devices, or human languages and dialects.
All in all, not a bad round of features. Hopefully we'll see them before too long.
