Mozilla's mobile browser gestures at innovations

A recent video suggests that Firefox's mobile experience, via Mozilla's Fennec browser, will prove every bit as disruptive as its desktop browser has been.

Mozilla has shaken up the desktop browser market with its innovative approach to add-ons and superior performance, earning itself 21.53 percent of the desktop browser market in the process.

While Mozilla has long lagged in mobile browsing, that seems set to change, if this video demonstrating gestures and other features of Mozilla's rapidly developing mobile Fennec browser is any indication:

Mozilla seems set to embrace and extend its own desktop experience with Fennec, giving even Apple a run for its money in mobile (and seemingly shuttering Microsoft's Windows Mobile efforts completely).
