Fennec, the mobile browser developed by Mozilla, makers of Firefox, will soon be making its way to Windows Mobile handsets. According to notes from this week's meeting posted on the Mozilla wiki, the new version is expected the first week of February and will target the HTC Touch Pro.
The Mozilla wiki states:
We are two patches away from the meta goal of building from trunk. The tools changes have review from dougt, and are waiting for review from ted, who has promised review by the end of the week. NSPR changes are waiting for review from Nelson, who asked for and received a patch against NSPR trunk.
The HTC Touch won't be the first device that's able to run the Fennec browser - currently the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet can also run the mobile browser. In addition, anyone who's just curious about what Fennec will look like or how it will behave can test it out on their desktop by installing the appropriate version: either Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
Want to see what Fennec looks like running on a Windows Mobile device? You can get an idea by checking out some of the images we found here on a Fennec developer's blog.
