Firefox Home ‘coming soon’ to iPhone, will sync with desktop browser originally appeared on Engadget on Wed, 26 May 2010 21:04:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
Continuous client functionality, you say? Sounds like Mozilla might be just what the doctor ordered. The company has announced that its upcoming Firefox Home app is coming soon to the iPhone. The program will sync up with your desktop client so that you can go mobile with all your browsing history, bookmarks and “the set of tabs from [your] most recent browser session” going along for the ride. Not only that, but there’s an “Awesome Bar” — Mozilla’s words, not ours — that’ll let you search through everything and predict options based on the available data. While not a “full” Firefox browser, according to the blog post (with the addendum, “either technically or due to policy”), the pages still load from within the app itself. No solidified release date yet — it’s still being polished for app store submission, but Opera’s luck give us hope for a smooth approval. In the meantime, you can get a quick preview in the video after the break.
