Will Firefox be available for IPAD and IPAD Mini soon?
I am very surprised that an excellent browser like Firefox is not available for download either at the App Store or on your website for IPAD & IPAD Mini. I have already installed on my Mac. Is this an over site or do you not plan for Firefox to become available to download on IPAD & IPAD Mini? Please let me know - Thank You.
As phillipp said, Macs don't use iOS, they run MacOS, and Firefox can be downloaded and run on them. iDevices (iPads, iPhones, iPods) run iOS, which has very restrictive polices to reduce competition with Apple's software.Read this answer in context 👍 52
