Developers, Android users get early look at Firefox Marketplace

Mozilla has opened its Firefox Marketplace app store for the first time in its latest test Aurora build of the browser for Android, asking early adopters and developers for their feedback.

Android device owners and developers are the first to get to see Firefox Marketplace.

Mozilla has opened its Firefox Marketplace, with Android device owners and developers getting the first access to the browser's app store.

The access arrived yesterday in the release of the latest "Aurora" build of Firefox for Android. Aurora is meant for developers and early adopters, as it is the test stream of Mozilla's browser. The storefront lets people find and install Web applications delivered via the browser, and gives developers a place to publicize their apps.

"We're hoping that Aurora users, our awesome early adopters, will go experience the Firefox Marketplace on their Android phones and let us know what they think," Mozilla Labs engineering manager Bill Walker said in a blog post.
