Firefox Home: Coming Soon on iPhone

Firefox home is a browsing session syncing application for the iPhone OS. This app is based on Firefox Sync and allows access to the last browsing history, bookmarks and the set of tabs. This serves as an excellent session manager for web browsing and the fact that it is available anywhere makes you feel at home, so the name.

The Firefox Home app provides encrypted protection and gives us an on the fly browsing experience where we can simply catch up from the last time and place we left browsing. Even better, this app is completely free of charge and provides many awesome features of Firefox add-ons on the iPhone, where we cannot actually have Firefox, thanks for Apple.

Ragavan writes at Mozilla blog saying,

Firefox Home for iPhone is part of a broader Mozilla effort to provide a more personal Web experience with more user control. For devices or platforms where we’re unable to provide the fullFirefox browser (either technically or due to policy), we aim to provide users with on the goinstant access to their personal Firefox history, bookmarks and open tabs on their iPhones, giving them another reason to keep loving Firefox on their desktops.

The project is still under development and will soon be  submitted to the iPhone app store.
