Firefox Home hits the iPhone

iPhone apps, Tech Digest news

Firefox home.jpgiPhone-owning fans of the Firefox Sync add-on will have something to cheer about this morning, as Apple have approved the Firefox Home app is good to go on their smartphone.

If you have an account with the Firefox Sync add-on running on your desktop Firefox browser, the app will let you access your desktop history, bookmarks and any recent tabs that you may have left open on your PC or Mac.

It’s not quite the Firefox Browser app that many are crossing their fingers waiting for (Apple’s SDK agreement requires that app developers use Apple’s own Javascript engine, whereas Mozilla use a custom one), but it does include the awesome Awesome bar that’s found in the regular desktop client.

Free to use, click here to give it a try.
