The folks at Mozilla posted last night to a company blog about the new plans they have to make a mobile browser a first-class consideration, a core platform, when working on the forthcoming Mozilla2. The new mobile browser is probably still a year away. I sure wish we didn’t have to wait to long, but hopefully it will be worth it.
The company said it will “ship a version of “Mobile Firefox” which can, among other things, run Firefox extensions on mobile devices and allow others to build rich applications via XUL.”
Two new additions to the Mozilla mobile team were also announced, Christian Sejersen and Brad Lassey, both mobile industry heavyweights. Sejersen will head a new R&D center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
