As you may remember, the Mozilla Foundation rolled out the final version of Firefox 4 to public last week, on the 22nd of March to be more precise. Yesterday, precisely a week after the launch of Firefox 4 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux desktop users, the Mozilla Foundation announced that it rolled out Firefox 4 for the Google-developed Android operating system.

“Mozilla, a global, nonprofit organization dedicated to making the Web better, is excited to release Mozilla Firefox 4 for Android,” said Mozilla. “Firefox delivers an intuitive interface, unparalleled customization and support for modern Web technologies. To make mobile browsing effortless and fun, Firefox provides seamless and secure access to personal data across desktop and mobile devices, including browsing history, bookmarks, open tabs, form data and passwords.”

If you would like to get Firefox 4 for your Android-powered device, you can take said device out, go to the Android Market and search for Firefox 4. Or you can visit the Android Market on the web (click this link), log in, and install Firefox 4 over-the-air, all from within your browser window.

Before you go get Firefox 4 for Android and put it to the test, take a look at the new bits and pieces it brings to the table:
Interface – the tabs and other browser controls hide out of sight when not in use.
Awesome screen – you don’t have to type very much because you have easy access to history, bookmarks and open tabs.
Sharing and saving – you can easily share sites with apps like Facebook, Twitter or Google reader and you can easily save to PDF the sites you find important.
Searching – you can easily customize the search engine list and add the search engine(s) you like the most.
Firefox Sync – included by default in Firefox 4, it synchronizes your data between multiple platforms. It can sync your Awesome Bar history, bookmarks, open tabs, passwords and form data across your desktop computers and mobile devices.
Customization – you can change the way the browser looks by using Personas and you can change the way the browser works by using add-ons.
Speed – when it rolled out Firefox 4 for desktop, Mozilla explained that thanks to the JägerMonkey JavaScript engine it is up to 6 times faster than Firefox 3.6. Mozilla explained that Firefox 4 for Android is built on the same browser engine as the desktop version, but optimized for mobile browsing.
