Mozilla firefox, one of the fastest and the most loved browsers of all times is available on most operating systems today.
It is particularly famous in the Windows desktop version. However, the application has been, a little shaky on iOS.
The company announced that the first public preview of Firefox for iOS has been launched in New Zealand.
This will be worked upon more after the application is tested on the iOS devices in the country.
Proper feedback would be collected and only then will the application be launched in other countries for iOS.
The company aims at launching the application before the end of the year to the whole world.
As per Mozilla, there can be a new feature called intelligent search added to this application.
With the help of this, the users would get some suggestions for their search results and if they want, they can also choose their search providers.
iOS users would be able to use firefox for the best features possible.
The application would ensure top class security for the app, including inclusion of passwords, tabs, browser history from desktop to your iPhone.
This can be done by the use of special Firefox Accounts, that the users would be able to create in order to maintain the features.
Another feature that can be availed is that of Visual Tabs.
As per Mozilla, it would be a great way to keep track of the open tabs.
Mozilla will leave no stone unturned when it comes to making a name with the iOS users.
The application is definitely going to be improved on the basis of user feedback which will be carefully analysed. I
f there is a chance at being the best browser, the company is willing to take it with iOS.
Processes that allow you to send feedback to Mozilla from within the app is also goint to be available.
The decision of making a browser dedicated only to iOS was taken back in December.
The company is all set to take the browser for iOS to the same popularity level as that of Windows desktops.
This was stated by the Firefox’s release manager Lukas Blakk. He sounded resolute when it was mentioned.
He also quoted that the company would take all the pains to build iOS a browser, even if it involved having no access to its own rendering engine.
In the past, there was a similar effort made and Mozilla had chosen not to go ahead with it, because it was hard to work freely on an OS which was as closed as iOS.
The company would work only if Apple was able to reduce its restrictions on third party browsers offered in the App Store.
But this was not what happened and Mozilla had to change its terms.
Apparently, iOS users seem pleased and would be glad to use the new browser.
