Firefox Mobile (Fennec) for Nokia N9 (MeeGo) hit the Nokia Ovi Store

It’s been great week for Nokia N9 users as Meego-Harmattan version of Firefox hit Nokia Ovi Store just days after the official release of Opera Mobile. Like Opera Mobile, Firefox Mobile (aka Fennec) is a full-fledged web browser but unlike OM, it was available for Android only until this MeeGo release. Looks, features and performance wise Firefox for N9 completely resembles its Android sibling. However flash support is still a “coming soon” feature. Other cons of Firefox Mobile are – its huge installation (over 18 MB setup which further expands on installation) and even larger memory (RAM) usage. We can expect however that Mozilla will resolve these issues soon considering the pace with which they are churning out new versions of Firefox (every 6 weeks).

You can download Firefox Mobile for N9 from Nokia Ovi Store right now (it’s free).
