Firefox desktop users will be happy to know that you can sync your bookmarks, history, tabs, passwords, and form-fill data with your mobile device. Pinch to zoom is fully supported and a custom start screen is available that gives access to past browsing sessions and opened tabs from other computers. Firefox Mobile's Beta is also reportedly a ton faster than the Alpha versions which made people cringe with its unresponsiveness and snail-like pace of browsing. If you want to give it a try, grab the download here or scan the QR code after the jump.
