Mozilla Firefox for iOS devices released; now available for download

Good news for those iOS users who also happen to be Firefox fans. Yes, MozillaFirefox has finally made its way to iOS devices like iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and users can download the browser right now from Apple Store.

However, there is a bit difference how Firefox for iOS works. Windows, OS X, Linux, and Android version of Firefox browser uses its own Gecko rendering engine but foriOS,  it uses WebKit rendering engine found on Apple Safari as Apple requires it for all iOS browsers.

If you are huge fan of Firefox add-ons, you will have to wait for full add-on support. Add-ons that are built on JavaScript can’t run on iOS version of the browser while the browser supports the native iOS extension system. Most third party add-ons already available for desktops or Android devices however are built around JavaScript.
