Many have waited for this one. Good news Mozilla fans! The mobile version of Firefox 4 Beta is here. It runs on Android and Nokia phones. Sad to say, iPhone is excluded.

Mozilla is can be defined as the browser of the world. And now, not just to your PCs and laptop but to your beloved phones as well. We’ve waited for this for so long and now, our wish was finally granted.

Known before as “Fennec”, Mozilla’s mobile version is simply called Firefox. The roll out is available for Nokia N900 users and any device under the Android 2.0 commonly known as Eclair. Supported devices includes Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Desire, Evo, Galaxy S and more.

Sorry iPhone people, but you have to stick with your old Firefox Home app in the App Store. Mozilla however, has no plans to work on BlackBerry as of the moment.

This mobile browser is “built on the same technology platform as Firefox 4 for desktop computers, just optimized for browsing on a mobile device.” according to Mozilla. The project is still in beta, updates for the final version is on its way.

Let your eyes see the sound as Firefox 4 Beta is now out with a new audio API. Experience music in a completely different way. It's time to give thanks to HTML 5!

Mozilla is rolling out a few new golden parachute with their newest release of the Firefox 4 Beta. The main feature of which is the new audio API. This new audio API enables you to “visualize sound” with the help of HTML 5 <audio> and <video> tags. As posted on Mozilla’s blog, it permits developers to read and write raw audio data within the browser to present sound information in a different way. Simply put, a user can experience music in Firefox as a rapidly scrolling string of raw-data numbers, audio wave visualization, filtered sound stream, EQ sound spectrum, abstract 3D animation and lots more. And if you’re a Windows user, you can expect a better graphics performance as Firefox takes advantage of the built-in DirectX 10 graphics hardware. The new Firefox 4 Beta is now available for free download.

The video below is a quick demo of how the new audio features works.
