Firefox for Android reaches ‘full’ status

For Android devotees, Mozilla’s issuance of Firefox for Android has been a long wait. Sure, the browser maker added it to the Android Market in beta form months ago and made the release candidate (RC) available last week.

However, today marks the first that the app is available in full, unfettered by qualifications that mark it a prerelease product prone to bugs and subjected to rigorous user testing.

In other words, the app is done.

I gave my hands-on impressions of the faster, better-designed RC version of Firefox 4 for Android (and Maemo) last week, and my colleague Seth Rosenblatt will be back with his own hands-on take, including the results of several benchmarking tests.

In the meantime, try out the free browser for yourself, and let us know what you think–did Mozilla take the lid off just in time, or does Firefox for Android still need some finishing touches?
