Mozilla: No Firefox Browser for the iPhone

Mozilla: No Firefox Browser for the iPhoneIf you’ve been expecting to see Firefox for the iPhone anytime soon, then hold your horses still.

In the recent post, Mozilla has answered to one of the most frequently asked questions: Firefox for the iPhone?

We are working to bring as much of your Firefox experience as possible to Firefox Home. People have asked about adding more browser-like features to Firefox Home, but there are technical and logistical restrictions that make it difficult, if not impossible, to build the full Firefox browser for the iPhone. We are focused on building Firefox Home as a rich, cloud-based application and making it a valuable product that people will continue to love and use.

From the answer above, it looks like Mozilla is unable to implement the full Firefox browser experience into the iPhone. However, as company continues to explorer various options and alternatives, we might see something what resembles a mobile web browser.

    I got my iPod for Christmas last year and been waiting ever since for the Firefox web browser. I hate using Safari, it still dosen’t even have tabbed browsing.
     
    It’s be cool if they could make the addons available like Personas Plus and IE Tab etc. But they might get a bit crowded with the iPhone’s/iPod’s small creen, unless you had an iPad!
