Check out the reworked Firerox for Android when it comes out in a few weeks, it will be pretty interesting and fast. Aurora and Nightly development builds are available already.

Firefox for Android

I get my Firefox from the excellent f-droid repo (http://f-droid.org/). Perhaps it would be worth submitting the appropriate meta-data magic to make it easier to distribute the nightlies? Otherwise I assume it's a manual load of the APK with adb?

Our release team submits Beta and final release builds to the Android market, not sure if there are any plans to go for the F-Droid repo as well. We also have APKs available that can be installed directly from our website and receive updates through our own update check mechanism.
There's new Aurora and Nightly builds every day, I'm not sure how well that works with any market or repo, so I think http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/#aurora/auro... and http://nightly.mozilla.org/ are probably the better variants to get them. Note that those builds are still heavily under development.

I installed Aurora on my Incredible, and it is indeed more slick. Unfortunately, synchronization still requires a desktop instance to mediate. I'll try it out more on the Nexus tonight.

Is it possible for Aurora to use the central Android certificate store? I use CAcert.org for my personal site and I imported the root certificates into my phones. Chrome is happy, but Firefox complains about it not trusing the connection. Also, after adding exceptions, I see no way to manage them other than clearing all of Aurora's data.
