Firefox for iOS is Now Available to Download from the Canadian App Store

Earlier this month Mozilla unveiled the Firefox browser (beta) for iOS, but the release was limited to those in New Zealand.


Today, the mobile web browser is available to all Canadians on the App Store. With the release of Firefox for iOS, Mozilla is looking to give mobile users an additional choice for their web browsing needs. However, this isn’t the first time Firefox has been available on mobile. Mozilla released their Firefox web browser for Android several years ago.

“Experience a fast, smart and personal Web. Firefox is the independent, people-first browser made by Mozilla, voted the Most Trusted Internet Company for Privacy. Hundreds of millions of people around the world use Firefox on desktop for a more personal browsing experience.”

Firefox brings numbered tabs to users, lists top visited sites, and provides intelligent search which gives users suggestions based on their previous browsing history. In addition, if you use the desktop version of Firefox, you will be able to sync your browser history, saved passwords, and active tabs with the mobile app.

Firefox for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later.

    I’m guessing this isn’t based on Gecko?

    Dislike that it requires 8.0 or later, but I am glad it is now an option on the app store.
    I primarily use Firefox on my mac because it is better on battery and more efficient than Chrome. Ideally, I would like to only use safari, but many plugins I use on a daily basis are not compatible with safari, making it pretty useless. Do wish this will change in the future because I do think safari is the fastest.
