Devices equipped with ARMv6 architecture, devices like the Samsung Galaxy Ace and LG Optimus Q, can now use Firefox for Android. Mozilla on Monday announced that its latest update introduces support for millions more devices running the older technology, and might prefer an alternative browser option.
Previously only available to handsets with ARMv7 processors, Mozilla said Firefox being available to a wider range of users “is an important step toward making the open Web free to all.” The company also said that new accessibility features, such as TalkBalk integration, have been included for those who are visually impaired.
Specs of at least 800MHz and 512GB of RAM is required for the ARMv6 devices, so anything under that unfortunately doesn’t qualify. Mozilla claimed that, of the 500 million Android devices in service, half currently run ARMv6, so the company certainly has an enormous base to cater to. If you’re unhappy with stock browsers, you can download Firefox for Android now.
