It seems Mozilla has plans to deliver its upcoming mobile Firefox (aka Fennec) browser to the Android platform, informs CNET. A year ago, the company has said it won’t develop a version of its browser for Android OS, because apps designed for it run in Java, which comes with certain limitations. However, last week Google announced the Android NDK (Native Development Kit) v1.0, which should allow developers to write programs running in the operating system’s Linux-based layer. So, according to Jay Sullivan, Mozilla’s vice president of mobile, there is now a chance for Android users to see Firefox on their smartphones, as company developers are now checking if the NDK is able to provide the necessary capabilities.
