Mozilla has updated their beta version of the mobile browser to Firefox 6 BETA and it is from now on available in the Android Market. Just like most browser updates promise to run faster, smoother, and more stable than previous releases. Those are always welcomed additions that is for sure. Among some of the changes are enhancements for large screen devices and tablets with adjustments to layout and buttons, and a visual refresh with a new Gingerbread theme for phones running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Things have been going good over at Mozilla, just this March they were announcing Firefox 4 for mobile. They’ve already released 5 and now Firefox 6 is in beta stages. They plan to continue to update until it is the most feature complete browser and as close to a desktop experience as possible.

As far as the web experience, here is a list of a few new features:

Higher-quality image scaling (on devices with NEON-compatible processors). Smoother zooming, less pixelation, crisper display of logos, etc.
Improvements for large-screen tablets: Optimizing Firefox for larger tablet devices, e.g. by adjusting UI elements, buttons, font size. (Phase 1)
Better integration of Form Assistant for a smoother user experience
Visual refresh with new Gingerbread theme for phones running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread): A fresh look for the browser to look even more beautiful on Gingerbread.
Universal Access: Optimized rendering of pages that use RTL layout (languages like Arabic, Hebrew) (see bug 634386)
