Firefox 4 Mobile Browser for Android and Maemo Hints of Social Game Firefox Spark

The release candidate build of the Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo is now available to download.

Usability-wise, the release notes point out that there are now 150 add-ons that work with Firefox 4 for Mobile, up from 100 last month — and there’s now a Form Assistant, which make logging into websites a lot easier, especially if you’ve Firefox Sync enabled.

The most significant change is that the now-infamous checkerboarding from page rendering and scrolling is now a lot less prevalent, due to smarter rendering and page loading algorithms. JavaScript performance has apparently been improved.

Finally, the RC contains a link to Firefox Spark, a new badge-collecting website, which seems to be one of Firefox 4 for Android’s ‘launch goodies.’ Firefox Spark will be a social game, where you share the Firefox for Android download link, collect badges, and level up.
