Moz/FF

Instead of bringing you Firefox-related news from the last seven days, this is an entire recap of Firefox in the year of 2009. It's been a big year for that cute little red panda and 2010 will be just as exciting if not more so!

2. Mobile Firefox -- Fennec -- is almost ready for prime time
