    Firefox mobile (nicknamed: Fennec) looks pretty impressive. From the slick UI to the easy-to-use tab interface, it looks like we may finally have an alternative to mobile Safari. Fennec is in the early stages of developement, so Mozilla still has a long way to go. It would be intersting to see Apple's stance on "replacement" applications being offered in the App Store.

    Aza Raskin (Mozilla's Head of User Experience) released this video showing the various features of Fennec. Hit the jump for a few screenshots of the application in action.

    Yeah I think that this is a very good alternative to Safari. I along with lots of other people would probably feel more at home with it.
