Mozilla today announced that it has submitted its Firefox Home browser syncing app to Apple for App Store review. Rather than developing its own iOS browser as Opera has done, Mozilla has chosen to make it easier for iOS users to move between Firefox on their desktop computers and Safari on their mobile devices.
Firefox Home is a free application that provides access to your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and open tabs on your iPhone. Firefox Home enables access to the websites you need on the go by picking up where you left off with your desktop browsing. Firefox Home uses your browser data, securely synced from Firefox on your desktop to the cloud, to let you search and browse it quickly and efficiently. You can view the sites you want directly in Firefox Home, open them in Mobile Safari or share them with friends via e-mail. Your Firefox data is private and only you have access to it.
Use of Firefox Home will require users to have the Firefox Sync add-on installed on their desktop browser.
