One of the worlds more predominant browsers has been up on the Android market for quite some time in BETA form, at which time it supported ARMv6 and ARMv7 processors, since its full release it is now only supported for ARMv7 processors. The final release also does not support Flash, although the intention is to support it in future releases.

Firefox 4 Mobile currently runs on Google Nexus One, the HTC Evo, and the Motorola Droid X, and don’t forget about the Android Tablets, Firefox 4 is fully supported on the Samsung Galaxy and Motorola Xoom.

Here is in insert from The Register

Firefox 4 for mobile includes Mozilla’s Firefox Sync service, which lets you synchronize browser data across multiple devices. Originally known as Firefox Weave, the service syncs bookmarks, history, “Awesome Bar” data, passwords, form-fill data, and open tabs. Mobile Firefox can also accomodate those famous Firefox add-ons, and it offers a new phone-centric interface that hides the browser controls when you’re not using them.
