The final version of Firefox for Android was released today.Previously, the popular browser was in a Beta release.

The app brings mobile speed and security to your favourite Android-powered device.

What we really like about the app is it’s ability to take advantage of add-ons giving you a more desktop like experience. 

While we think that this is a solid release from Firefox the app still leaves something to be desired. We like Firefox but the app for Android really doesn’t separate it from the pack. We prefer Chrome.
