Mozilla's latest beta of Firefox for Android, now uses less memory, features improved text rendering and has a "60% install size reduction" down to 17mb from 43mb originally.

Also in this version are a new theme, support for sharing links from Site Menu, and ability to undo closing a tab. Panning and zooming are now faster, and page load times have been reduced. Mozilla claims that on Android 2.2, Firefox 4 Beta 2 is 25% faster than the stock browser in SunSpider JavaScript benchmark.

A Feedback button allows you to quickly voice your opinion on the browser, and crash reporting has been made a lot easier to use.

Mozilla says that the next release of the browser will feature hardware acceleration for scrolling and zooming, as well as featuring HTML5 video.
