Firefox "Home" Iphone

After 7 weeks Mozilla announce it, the Firefox home it's now on the Itunes Store. The Firefox home is not a web browser, instead is a synchronization plug-in for the activity in your pc, open tabs, bookmarks, etc.

Mozilla also has no plans to make a complete browser for Apple iOS, either. The company said previously that it opted not to port Firefox to the iOS platform due to limitations it said had been imposed on iPhone applications by Apple. Still, Firefox Home does work in concert with some Apple technology: Back in May, a Mozilla spokesperson explained to InternetNews.com that the Firefox Home viewer uses the iPhone's native WebKit rendering engine, and link information is then viewed with the Safari browser.

The Firefox Home application will work on Apple iOS versions 3.1 or higher and weighs in as a 2.4 MB download.
