Mozilla today officially cancelled the project for Firefox Mobile on iOS.

 

The team behind the project posted on the Mozilla mobile blog today saying "no Firefox browser for the iPhone, also adding "technical and logistical restrictions that make it difficult, if not impossible, to build the full Firefox browser for the iPhone".

 

But, instead Mozilla will be putting all efforts into it's Firefox Home, which is a cloud-based add on for iOS devices.

 

They offered a list of upcoming features for Firefox Home, including: password synchronization from desktop installs of Firefox, social network integration and better integration with other iOS applications. The team also confirmed that work is being done on bringing Firefox Home to other platforms that currently lack a Firefox browser build - including, both Blackberry and Symbian platforms in the next few months.

 

Disappointing news for Firefox and iOS fans!
