In a blog post, Mozilla has expressed that they’re working on Firefox for iPhone named as Firefox Home app. It will be available to download for free. Firefox Home will use Firefox Sync (formerly known as Weave Sync) to give users instant access to browsing history on iPhone. Firefox Sync will be based on bookmarks and recently opened URLs synchronization. This feature is showcased in the video below:
Here is what a recent update at Mozilla blog reads:
Firefox Home provides an amazing “get up and go” experience. It’s encrypted end-to-end. It’s your home on the Web, wherever you are. And, of course, it’s free.
Firefox Home for iPhone is part of a broader Mozilla effort to provide a more personal Web experience with more user control. For devices or platforms where we’re unable to provide the “full” Firefox browser (either technically or due to policy), we aim to provide users with “on the go” instant access to their personal Firefox history, bookmarks and open tabs on their iPhones, giving them another reason to keep loving Firefox on their desktops.
It still requires some more work before Mozilla submit it to the App store. Opera for iPhone is also available in App store after it was approved on April 12.
