Installed Fennec 4b2 with dpkg yesterday and unfortunately I can't share
your enthusiasm. Application went back to its habits from pre-1.1 era, when
pretty much every tap on screen was followed by huge lag, lasting anything
between 1 second and ~1 minute (sic!). The only more-or-less usable version
of Firefox Mobile is 1.1, where lags were somehow reduced to acceptable
levels, but only when I've had less than 2-3 tabs opened at a time. Having
said that, MicroB, albeit having lot of room for improvements too, is still
my browser of choice...
