Firefox Home hits the iPhone: Looks handy

Firefox Home looks like a handy app that could give Mozilla a foothold in the mobile and cloud markets.

Firefox has landed on the iPhone with its Home app, which gives you your browsing history, data and synching capabilities with your desktop.

The Firefox Home app puts Mozilla's toe in the mobile waters. With Firefox Home, users can view Web sites in the app, open them in Safari and share them. Since Firefox Home works on the iPhone it should work on the iPad too even though Mozilla only mentions the iPhone and iPod touch.

In a video, Mozilla shows a use case where a woman starts to book a flight, but has to leave her house. From her car, she picks up where she left off via Firefox Home.

Here are a few screenshots:

Overall, Firefox Home looks like a handy app that could give Mozilla a foothold in the mobile and cloud markets.
