firefox beta on android

You know we all love Opera, and there really is none better on mobile, but I am a bit of a Mozilla fanboi (Firefox / Thunderbird).

Firefox Beta works fine on Android, heavier than Opera, but still works very well.

AND, ummm, the sync works for bookmarks, etc., as well as the master password protection for my saved passwords :up:

  2. I think you're hinting Opera (webkit) Mobile needs to bring back Opera Link into its browser.Maybe it's just me.

    Well yes, I was. I assume that all the features will eventually come back. It seems that Opera is taking a big risk, but maybe it will pay off nicely.

    In other areas, it seems that splitting the desktop browser and the email program into two has really caused a big controversy. I don't care about that one. I've always preferred separate apps.

  4. I only used M2 once or twice. I found no use for it. It'll pay off. I just want Opera Link back to synch my passwords. 😆 Hate having to enter them again.Yea, I think it's better than having an app that does it all. Example (assuming we're talking about Opera): In the presto version of Opera, we have M2, a bit torrent client, maybe chat (if I'm not mistaken, IRC.), and web browsing compatibility.M2 was, IMHO, simple and efficient but not good enough. Thunderbird worked better. The bit torrent client was complete and utter shit. Yea, it worked, but damn was it slow. Transmission seemed to download faster.The IRC chat worked as intended, but I preferred xChat or mIRC due to more customisation & control.Tl;dr: Just because ya have a product that does it all doesn't mean it's the best at it.P.S: I didn't include Unite because it got shelved awhile back.

  5. Oh, best Android app for XMPP that I've found is Xabber. Works great, has OTR, most everything.I've not yet found anything that will do IRC well on mobile, though I really dislike doing IRC on mobile.

  6. –I liked Unite though I could do almost every function by another method.–M2 was clean and nice enough, but so is T-bird, and I'm completely familiar with Thunderbird for years.–The Opera torrent client would always freeze up on me overnight. Transmission will run till my cable drops dead.–IRC, I always prefer xchat, or Pidgin for quickies.I like recapping apps with you. :up: Yeah, gotta have sync and password manager with master password.

    I haven't found a decent app either.
