Fennec (Mobile firefox) beta 1 walkthrough

Here a quick walk through of the new Fennec browser: the mobile firefox browser. There are some interesting new interaction paradigms beeing introduced to make the mobile web experience much more user friendly.

Notably are the hiding and showing of the browser controls, interaction with search fields of other mobile sites, support for flash video, add-ons, gestures, location support etc ...

I am sure that Fennec will introduce some nice innovations that will reshape the mobile web landscape and introduce more convergence towards a mobile app like experience! Looking forward to future releases.
