Mozilla have just pushed Firefox 14 for Android, and made it available on the Google Play store. Firefox 14 doesn't have any new stand-out features to really brag about, but there's enough filler here to have a reason to upgrade your mobile browser.

Mozilla claim that Firefox 14 is faster, including start up and page load times, as well as panning and zooming. This even includes running mobile web pages like Mozilla's BrowserQuest game. Mozilla note that Firefox 14 runs much faster than the stock Android browser, with sample tests showing Firefox 14 to be more than three times faster than the default Android browser.

Firefox 14 sports a new streamlined look, including a personalized start page. Awesome Screen, a function that is powered by Firefox Sync, brings across all of your bookmarks, passwords and browsing history from y our PC to your smart device. Mozilla have also tweaked tabbed browsing and add-ons to bring a more desktop-like experience. Firefox 14 also features Flash for a broader range of web content compatibility, as well as HTML5 capabilities.
