Firefox for Android has just been updated and is now in version 15. The top-billing for the new features brought by this update is the badly wanted tablet support. So, if you own the Google Nexus 7, you now have a good if not equally good alternative to Google’s mobile Chrome browser. Support for tablet means that the mobile browser is now faster on tablets but there’s also a new, or as Mozilla puts it – beautiful new design.

Other new features include the following:

  • Find in page
  • Text Selection fixed
  • Desktop sites can be requested from the menu
  • Better tabs experience – swipe to close
  • Support for SPDY networking protocol v3
  • Bookmarks & history can be imported from stock browser in the Settings
