Mozilla on Tuesday outlined plans for its Firefox Home app, which will be launched on the BlackBerry and Symbian platforms.
Firefox Home was launched in July and a new version landed last week. It's a cloud-based app that saves your browsing history so you can pick up a desktop session on your phone.
The key points:
- Mozilla will take Firefox Home to new platforms in addition to the iPhone.
- The app will have access to Facebook and Twitter data.
- Panorama settings will move to your phone.
- Mozilla has no plans for an iPhone Firefox browser. In a blog post, Mozilla said:
We are working to bring as much of your Firefox experience as possible to Firefox Home. People have asked about adding more browser-like features to Firefox Home, but there are technical and logistical restrictions that make it difficult, if not impossible, to build the full Firefox browser for the iPhone.
