Mozilla CEO John Lilly confirms that there will be no Firefox iPhone/iPod touch. D'oh!
Wired: Are you going to develop a version of Firefox for the iPhone?
Lilly: No. Apple makes it too hard. They say it’s because of technical issues — they don’t want outsiders to disrupt the user experience. That’s a business argument masquerading as a technological argument. We’re focusing on more important stuff. The iPhone has been influential, but there’s not that many of them. We’re part of the LiMo Foundation — Linux on Mobile. The Razr V2 is a LiMo phone, and you’ll see more in the next year or so.
I had been hoping that Firefox would make it to the iPhone/iPod touch, but kinda assumed that it wouldn't because Apple has unrealistic aspirations for Safari. Shame.
Roll on LiMo. My next cellphone will, without a doubt, be a LiMo.
