In Pictures: 10 things to know about Firefox 17

A brief look at what’s new in Mozilla’s latest browser.

Reader Mode (Firefox for Android)

In the Android version of Firefox, Reader Mode will reformat a page to make it more readable on the smaller screen of a mobile device. If Firefox determines that it can do this upon fully loading the page, a book icon will appear by the URL bar -- tapping this will extract the main text in the page you are reading, enlarging its font, and stripping away the other elements in the layout. However, with many sites that did not have mobile versions, Reader Mode would not trigger on. When it is available and you activate it, you cannot pinch-and-zoom in on a re-formatted page -- instead you enlarge (or shrink) text through a settings toolbar along the bottom of the browser.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
