Mozilla Testing Firefox Browser for iOS
Mozilla has released a public preview of its Firefox browser for iOS, though the preview is limited to New Zealand. Mozilla has long shied away from bringing Firefox to iOS, but given the popularity of iOS devices it reconsidered. Mozilla is limiting the preview to New Zealand for scale purposes and is hoping to receive feedback on visual tabs, how the browser functions with Firefox accounts, and intelligent search. Mozilla hopes to release Firefox for iOS worldwide later this year.
