Few days ago, Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla director of Firefox Engineering declared on a mailing catalog that Firefox will shift to Android's local user interface, by ditching the XUL technology that is been in exploit by Mozilla ever since before there even was a Firefox."The Firefox on Android is a significant part of sustaining the open Web, with this conclusion puts us in a situation to build the finest Firefox possible," said by Nightingale.
Firefox is generally used on personal computers although a rarity on cell phones, where not like Apple's Safari or the unbranded browser Google make for Android, it is not installed on every handsets by default. Firefox is the major key of Mozilla which tries to execute its vision of authorizing users of the Web as well as keeping that Web in an open technology.
Firefox by means of a native Android user interface should mean less memory usage, faster start-up and smoother panning and zooming, said by Nightingale. The native user interface project page designed for mobile Firefox, also known as Fennec, also listed superior battery life as a advantage. It is not obvious when the restructured version will appear, however it won't be for either the Aurora or beta versions which is currently in testing, Nightingale said by Nightingale.
Start-up time is a huge deal when balancing Firefox with the integrated browser on Android, particularly since Firefox frequently gets clear memory when not in use, compelling any more slow load when any individual taps a link as well as requires the browser yet again. "After considerable argument, we have determined to build upcoming versions of Firefox on Android along with a native user interface as an alternative of the current XUL implementation," said by Nightingale.
