Mozilla claims to have completely redesigned its browsing experience with Firefox 9, a new browser which is optimized for Android tablets.

Firefox 9 features a revamped user interface to enhance browsing on tablet screens and is similar to the group’s previous releases in that it integrates with Firefox Sync, which makes it easy to access browsing history and open tabs, bookmarks and saved passwords across desktop and mobile devices.

Web browsing is optimized for portrait and widescreen viewing, while there is a new Action Bar menu, where users can access Firefox Preferences, Add-ons and downloads. The Action Bar also adds back, forward and one-touch bookmark buttons for easy navigation.

For developers, the new Firefox 9 includes a set of enhanced HTML5 tools –including the HTML 5 Input Tag for camera access, which allows web-based apps to access a tablet’s microphone and camera.

Firefox 9 is now available from Android Market.
