Mozilla has begun moving Firefox Beta on Android to the Fenix engine, a new Firefox experience it plans to introduce on Android. According to the Are We Fenix Yet? status page, the move of Firefox Beta to Fenix is currently 2.1%, and according to the development process, porting to Firefox Beta is the final stage before the browser enters the release channel. Available for download by regular Firefox users.
At the end of January, Mozilla approved the engine migration of the Android version of the Firefox Nightly channel, and if it goes well, we’ll see Mozilla available on the Release channel by the end of May and prepare for an update in June or July.
Mozilla has been working on a new engine for Fenix, or Firefox Preview, for about a year, with the goal of bringing new, faster browser engines and introducing features that already exist in existing Firefox. Earlier this month, developers released Firefox Preview 4, which includes better login management, popular sites and initial add-on support.
At present, Android’s Firefox release channel has been stuck on Firefox 68, the larger version did not follow the PC / macOS and other versions of the rise, today’s engine change news can be seen that those running Firefox Beta users should soon be able to get the new version of the browser.
