> Hello,
> 
> Just FYI, Google introduced Android 2.2 FroYo few day ago on Google I/O. Few new features may be  interesting for us:
> 
> * "Android Cloud to Device Messaging Framework" http://code.google.com/android/c2dm/. This framework may be used for synchronizing  data. You may see high level thoughts at http://wiki.azigo.net/display/Azigo3/Server+Push+proposal.
> 
> * Adobe flash browser plugin is available on the android market (android app). Android Browser has menu Browser->More->Settings->"Enable plug-ins". I'm not sure, but it seems google provides API for supporting browser plugin (however i can't find it) or just back-door for flash plugin.
> 
> * Android Browser supports APN proxy settings (but it doesn't work via wifi), so we may review again ability to use local proxy instead of enhanced browser. 
> 
> BTW, mozilla start doing nightly build of the fennec browser for android  ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/nightly/latest-mobile-trunk/. Latest fennec build supports browser extensions.
