Fennec Alpha 3 for Windows mobile was released recently in September 2009. This release brings lot of new enhanced features to the product. Some enhancements like – panning, fixes to the previous bugs, improved start up time, wider screen resolutions and many more.
The start up time of the product is improved, but it doesn’t take into effect unless and until you restart the device. This is because it has windows operating system and this is the general behavior or windows in fact.
Panning concept is taken care in this version. It saves the previously rendered content and does not need the user to go back and search for the content again. This process easily avoids duplication of efforts. It also allows the user to switch over the native scrolling surfaces which has greatly improved panning performance. The user also has the flexibility to go ahead and keep track of invalidated regions in order to reduce panning.
The phone also supports wider range of widgets and applications which can be used by users for their personal purposes. It has wider range of screen resolutions which depicts the power of our XUL based front page. If you are using the touch screen then you can very well use the device with just your finger and you can do wonders with it. You can reach any part of the application with your finger tip – this is the most loved feature by all. You can also zoom in with the touch sensitive touch pad which is an amazing feature.
