For those who are still hoping for another Safari alternative on iOS, this one’s a heart breaker. Mozilla today announced in a blog post that they have no plans to bring a Firefox browsing experience to iOS.
We are working to bring as much of your Firefox experience as possible to Firefox Home. People have asked about adding more browser-like features to Firefox Home, but there are technical and logistical restrictions that make it difficult, if not impossible, to build the full Firefox browser for the iPhone. We are focused on building Firefox Home as a rich, cloud-based application and making it a valuable product that people will continue to love and use.
Mozilla currently offers their ‘Firefox Home’ application for iPhone which wirelessly transfers users bookmarks, history, and all sorts of things to their iPhone. Firefox said back in 2008 that they wouldn’t be making an iOS version of Firefox due to Apple’s app review process, for those keeping track.
