If you’re hanging out for Mozilla’s Firefox browser on your brand spanking new iPhone, then you’ll be in for a long wait.
Mozilla CEO John Lilly told Wired recently that there won’t be a Fennec for the Apple device, saying:
“Apple makes it too hard. They say it’s because of technical issues â€” they don’t want outsiders to disrupt the user experience. That’s a business argument masquerading as a technological argument.”
Sounds like Apple is trying to preserve the Safari stranglehold on the iPhone, which is a real shame – what’s the point of opening an App Store and then making it too difficult for software companies to get the apps out there, especially when they’re as good as Firefox?
