Mozilla set to launch mobile phone browser

                      Mozilla, the world's second-largest internet browser firm, is all set to release its Firefox web browser for mobile phones in a few days, a BBC report said.

                       It will compete with existing rivals, including Opera Mini, Safari, Chrome, Nokia, Netfront and Internet Explorer for mobile.
The browser, codenamed Fennec, will initially be available for Nokia's N900 phone, followed by other handsets.
                      It is currently going through final testing and could be released before the end of the year, said Jay Sullivan at Mozilla, the group behind Firefox.
                      Globally, on the mobile front, Opera commands the largest market share - about 26 per cent - followed by Safari (22 per cent), Nokia web browser (19 per cent) and iTouch (10 per cent).
Other web browsers, which may face competition from Fennec will be Netfront, Android, Blackberry and Sony PSP. On the whole, Mozilla is going to make its record as that of Downloads. View for more updates @
