Mozilla had initially resisted releasing a version of Firefox for iOS devices, due to Apple’s insistence that third-party browsers use Apple’s own WebKit and Javascript engines. However, in the face of its rapidly dwindling desktop marketshare, the browser developer finally relented, and announced its plans to release an iOS version of the once popular browser back in December.

Firefox for iOS is written in Swift 2.0, and the open source code is available via GitHub.

Firefox for iOS is free and is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices on the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
