    Before any one says 'Duh,' I read the specs for Firefox 4 Beta before I installed it. I was expecting issues...

    Now, with that said, the Firefox 4 Beta does not function well on my Droid with 2.2.1 Android. It is slow, choppy and my phone re-booted once. This is in-line with the specs needed for this beta. It is recommended that you have an ARMv7 processor. Apparently, the ARM Cortex A8 isn't fast enough.

    FYI!

    I ran one of the original beta's, it was slow and large and clunky. The android default browser is really not that bad and there is always Skyfire as an alternative like FF

    I have tried all the browsers and I was giving the new Firefox beta a try. I am giving a heads up incase other Droid users wanted to try it.

    There's another well-designed browser that's come out of the Chinese MIUI ROM. It has been extracted, translated into English, and available on the Android Market.

    Search for "Miren Browser"

    The interface is quite nice and the controls are intuitive.
