* Support for HSTS security protocol allowing sites to insist that they only be loaded over SSL.
* As well as all the features from previous Firefox 4 Betas.
If you’re low on internal phone storage and want the app installed on an SD card, this beta now has better support for profiles, moving ones it’s saved along with the app when transferring it to a flash card.
While Mozilla didn’t give any specific figures, it asserts that it has been working on making sure that Firefox beta 5 takes up as little system memory as possible. Release notes suggest a 512MB minimum.
You can try out the latest beta 5 yourself with a phone running Android 2.0 or higher, as well as with Maemo on the Nokia N900.
