Mozilla Plans to Launch Its Firefox Browser for iOS

Mozilla has announced that it's now planning to release a version of the Firefox browser for iOS.

At an internal Mozilla event in Portland, the company's leadership announced the decision.

“We need to be where our users are,” Firefox release manager Lukas Blakk wrote on Twitter today (quoting Mozilla’s VP for Firefox Jonathan Nightingale, TechCrunch suggests). “So we’re going to get Firefox on iOS.”

Since Apple requires the use of its JavaScript and rendering engines on iOS, it's likely that Firefox will have work within those confines. However, the browser would bring support for Firefox features such as bookmark syncing making it easy for Firefox desktop users to continuing browsing on iOS.

Matthew Ruttley, Mozilla's Manager of Data Science, posted a photo from the event exclaiming, "Firefox for iOS!! Let's do this!!!"

Guess no one can ignore IOS. Firefox had openly said in the past they will not bring Firefox to IOS until Apple allows them to use their own engine.
