After a long-running, conspicuous absence, Firefox is now available for iOS. Mozilla announced last year that the browser would be coming to the platform, launched a public preview in September, and is now making it available to all iPhone and iPad users.
Firefox for iOS lets you take your favorite browser with you wherever you go with the Firefox features you already love including smart and flexible search, intuitive tab management, syncing with Firefox Accounts and Private Browsing.
You can use Firefox Accounts to sync your browsing history, tabs and passwords and bring bookmarks from your other devices to Firefox for iOS.
- Search suggestions predict what you’re looking for in your favorite search engine.
- Visual Tabs allow you to easily manage multiple tabs on the same screen.
- Private Browsing gives you the ability to browse the Web without saving history or sharing existing cookies with the sites you visit.
For Firefox, reaching iOS has been a long and winding road. The company (somewhat inexplicably) shunned Apple’s platform, relying instead on Firefox Home — a mobile app that let you access your Firefox bookmarks, tabs and history — but giving up on it in 2012.
