Mozilla is currently working on a new mobile web browser for Android called Firefox Fenix currently and it is considered to be a replacement for the Old firefox, this is the main reason why development for Firefox for Android slowed down in recent months.
Fenix is based on Android Components and GeckoView, and is in active development at the time of writing.
The First new thing that you will notice about this firefox is its new sleek design and its fantastically smooth animations, The animations are really smooth on this one.
Mozilla Fenix: Why the name?
Fenix could be a misnomer for Phoenix, the bird. Same as a Phoenix rises from ashes, this could symbolize a new project arising from Fennec.
This could also symbolize Mozilla’s situation right now. On my post about the Scout browser, I mentioned about Mozilla struggling with Google Chrome’s high market share. So, Fenix could be Mozilla’s rise from its ashes.
