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 Lab's Firefox Home app has cleared Apple's approval process and is now available for free in the App Store. The app uses Firefox Sync to import browser history, tabs, and the Awesome Bar, bringing a truncated version of the Firefox experience to the iPhone and iPod Touch.
