Firefox submits Home app to Apple

Continuous experience between fixed and mobile browsing.

Mozilla has submitted its Home application for Firefox to Apple for inclusion in its App store.

The firm said that the free application will let users of its browser carry their desktop history and bookmarks over to the Apple handset.

It added that this should allow for a continuous browsing experience as users flit between fixed and mobile browsing.

Users would have to have already installed Firefox Sync to take advantage of these cross-platform features. This, the firm explained, lets them save content securely in the cloud.

If Home is accepted by Apple, iPhone users who download it will be able to open tabs – for example, in either Firefox Home or Mobile Safari – as and when they need them.

Mozilla suggested a couple of likely scenarios in a blog post.

“Are you on the go all the time? Run to a meeting, or catch a cab to the airport without thinking twice. Just pull out your iPhone and access the list of tabs you just had open on your desktop," it said.
