The first mobile version of the Mozilla Firefox browser is just days away from being released.

A spokesperson from Mozilla confirmed to IT PRO that it would not be long until the release candidate was available for download.

"It is a matter of days rather than weeks or months until the release candidate is ready [and] Mozilla will be ready to ship it when it is," the spokesperson said.

With the codename "Fennec," the browser will initially only be available for Nokia's latest device the N900 read our review here but will spread to other devices throughout 2010.

The main feature of the mobile version will be the ability to sync with a user's PC, opening any browser pages from the desktop directly onto the handset.

Yesterday, the PC version of Firefox 3.5 overtook Internet Explorer 7 as the most popular browser with 21.9 per cent market share, according to StatCounter.
