  • As with the desktop Firefox, users can search for new add-ons, such as the popular AdBlock Plus. Another example is TwitterBar, which adds tweeting functionality to the already multi-talented Awesome Bar.

  • The mobile Firefox renders sites well, providing the user with a zoom level that fits the width of the page to the device's screen.

  • Tapping on the screen allows the user to zoom in.

    The mobile version of Firefox does not support multitouch pinch-and-zoom functionality. This could be due to the N900's resistive touchscreen, as multitouch generally requires capacitive screens.

  • Just a quick point, the N900 built-in browser does offer flash (but I normally leave it turned off)
