First build of Fennec for Windows Mobile caught on video

We have seen the new Mozilla Mobile browser Fennec released for the Nokia Linux tablet and even for the Windows desktop,but so far we have never seen the browser actually in action on the Windows Mobile platform.

Open source whiz Gnubeashie has however managed to build the browser from the early source code and published this video of the software running in the Windows Mobile 6.1 emulator.

The user interface is functional but not particular pretty, but this is because it is just a test container for the renderer, rather than any indication of the final UI. Of note is that rendering is pretty good and that the code runs pretty well for running in the notoriously slow emulator.

At present the code is not available for download yet, but hopefully this will change soon. We can never have enough browsers to play with, can we?
