First Firefox Mobile release candidate, er, released

We explained a little while ago a few of the reasons why we're looking forward to seeing Firefox Mobile, aka Fennec. Now, it's time to start playing.

Mozilla has posted "an early developer release of the mobile version of Firefox, for testing purposes only." [via Gizmodo]

And test, we shall.

Fennec still is only actually running on a Nokia 810. But you can get a taste of it now on your desktop or laptop computer. The full version of loaded without a hitch (minus Flash, of course), and I got 90 out of 100 on the Acid3 test, which is in line with those early shots we saw. Yeah, it's a release candidate on a desktop PC, but we're still starting to get goosebumps.

Check out Mozilla's alpha release page here, then get your download on, be you a Windows, Mac or Linux OS.

Edit: Wait a minute. ... Flash is (kind of) implemented? They're expecting full-on add-on support? This is looking better by the minute. Unless you're running a non-touchscreen device.
