Develop Mobile Add-ons
Fennec 1.0 beta 4 for Maemo is available for download on Nokia’s N900. As the first mobile Web browser to offer add-ons, you have an opportunity to showcase your add-on to the world. We invite you to share your mobile innovations for this momentous launch.

Take a look at some helpful resources for add-ons developers as well as the Mobile Add-ons Style Guide to help you develop and optimize your extension for mobile.

Your innovations and expertise are critical to our success. Please contact Mark Finkle (mfinkle) on irc.mozilla.org (#mobile) if you have any questions when developing your mobile add-on.

Mobile Design Challenge
The Mobile team has a challenge for Mozilla’s creative community: Create our official mobile emblem!

We’d love to see Mozilla’s vision for mobile interpreted through your clever designs. Firefox for mobile phones is not some stripped-down, clunky mobile Web browser. In contrast, it’s built on our latest and greatest browser engine, and comes complete with powerful and familiar features like the Awesome Bar, one-touch bookmarking, add-ons and the latest security and privacy features.

What does a secure, customized and intuitive browser mean to you when you’re on the go? Exploring a new city? In traffic? Waiting around for the bus? Show us! Designs will be collected and voted on by the Mozilla community. The winning design will be named the “Official Mobile Emblem” and will be showcased in a variety of places, for a variety of uses. Good luck!
