Mozilla is currently using Nokia Internet Tablet devices for the reference platform as far as public testing for Fennec is concerned. But users and developers who do not own a Nokia device can also download the software onto a regular desktop to try out.

The desktop version of Firefox is now used by around 30% of web surfers, according to web analytics firms. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is used by over 60% of surfers.
