Does Firefox work with IPad. Or only Mac desktop

Posted

I have an IPAD and was suggested by an online business to download Firefox and then proceed with their steps to set up my site. So is it an IPad friendly app or is there some other app you would suggest

At some point there may be a Firefox for iOS, but right now there are no plans to do so.

We have no plans to release the full Firefox browser for iOS. The iOS SDK agreement requires apps to use Apple's own JavaScript engine (or none at all... Because of this, we have no supported way to distribute Firefox's rendering and JavaScript engine to iPhone users.


There was a browser prototype called Junior that uses the same WebKit rendering engine found in Safari for the iPad. http://www.webmonkey.com/2012/06/mozilla-junior-brings-firefox-to-your-ipad/
