Mozilla Firefox is Coming to iOS

While I can run Safari, Chrome, Opera, and a plethora of other browsers on my iPhone – Mozillas Firefox has sadly always been missing from the iOS suite of devices. Android users got Firefox back in 2011, Apple users however have been waiting this whole time.

In the past Mozilla never seemed to wish to handle the hurdles set forth by Apple – such as the need to use Apples own JavaScript and rendering engine. Thankfully it seems this is finally going to change as Lukas Blakk, Mozilla release manager, confirmed on Twitter.

So Firefox fans rejoice! As far as what we can expect – well Firefox is already on Android platforms and I would say we can expect something similar to the Android experience. Firefox on Android is highly customizable allowing you to mix up your panels however you like, bookmark favorites on the web, access feeds, sync tabs, history, bookmarks and passwords, use add-ons (ad-blocker, password manager), watch video in a wide range of formats (including h.264), and control your privacy.
