Apple has approved Firefox Home, a free app from the Mozilla Foundation for mobile devices running the iPhone operating system such as the iPhone and iPad. Firefox Home lets users sync and view bookmarks and open tabs and browser history between the iOS device and a desktop or notebook computer.
Mozilla has been staunchly opposed to an iOS version of its Firefox browser for a while. It wants to use its own web engine, but Apple will only let companies use its in-house code in the name of security. However, the organization is clearly having a change of heart -- VP Jonathan Nightingale has revealed that Mozilla wants to bring Firefox to iOS.
