Firefox for Maemo 1.1 (with neat new features) in May

The mobile Firefox team has some neat new features coming for the next Firefox for Maemo release, currently labeled as version 1.1, as noted by Mark Finkle in a blog post.

Among the new features:

  • Form assistant improvements, including autocomplete

  • Start page redesign

  • Auto update add-ons
  • Portrait support on N900
  • Context Menu with Open in New Tab and Save Image

  • Web content theme update
  • Manage site preferences (clearing passwords and others)

  • Clean up site menu
  • Use volume keys to zoom on N900
  • Save page to PDF. This features has been postponed a lot of times for the desktop version.

It’s worth noting that most of these new features have already landed in mobile Firefox, and a beta is expected for later this week, with a final release targeted for May.

Much expected Firefox for Android, the other current Firefox mobile platform, is also currently  under development, and nightly builds are expected soon.
