Mozilla has been trying to get on the iOS bandwagon for a very long time, and after the successful beta testing of the Firefox Browser, it’s finally been introduced in iPads and iPhones. But, here’s the catch – it’s only available in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Austria for now. This limited release will allow the company to gather feedback and iron out any creases in the browser. Only then will it be made available to the rest of the world.
As things stand now, Mozilla wants users’ reaction on three main features available on Firefox, the first of which is the Visual Tabs. This feature provides users with insight on all open tabs on the browser across all your devices.
Intelligent Search is another feature that Mozilla wishes to gather opinion on. It provides you with suggested results on a secondary tab above the original one, allowing you to choose the search engine of your choice.
And last, but not the least on their list, is Firefox Account. This feature enables registered Firefox users to retrieve their usage history, tabs, and passwords from their computer to the iOS devices.
To make things easier, Mozilla has given users the convenience of sending feedback directly via the Firefox app. Furthermore, those who sign up for Firefox get notified whenever the app is available in their country.
The cautious step taken by Mozilla becomes all the more apparent as the company refuses to declare the launch date for the iOS version of the browser. The feedback from New Zealand will decide whether Mozilla will launch Firefox in your country. So keep your fingers crossed and hope everyone there loves the new version!
