Mozilla Brings Firefox to iPhone, iPad

| Product News

Mozilla finally released Firefox for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on Thursday, following through on their announcement from about a year ago. The iOS version of the Web browser supports syncing tabs, book marks, and history with other devices, and includes private browsing support, and includes iPad Pro support, too.

Firefox for iOS can also remember website passwords, offers up search suggestions, lets you delete cookies and browser history, and more. What it can't do, however, is replace Mobile Safari as your default browser. Until Apple gives us a way to change that, tapping links in email and text messages will launch Safari instead.

Firefox for iOS is free, and is available at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.
