Firefox Home hits the app store

Firefox Home has hit the iPhone app store. This is not a browser application. Until Opera’s surprise browser approval in the app store, everyone assumed that Apple would not allow third party browsers.

Firefox Home provides access to your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and open tabs on your iPhone. Get up and go and have exactly what you are looking for on the Web on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Firefox Home is an application which will allow you access to your PCs bookmarks and history on the go. Not a terrible idea, but I would still prefer this along with a actual browser, or even as some sort of browser plugin.

Firefox Home requires a Firefox sync account which you must sign up for on your computer. Has anyone used this app? Let us know in the comments.

Quick Start:

If you have Firefox Sync on your desktop, skip to step #3.

  1. Install Firefox Sync, a free add-on for Firefox, on your desktop.
  2. Restart Firefox and follow prompts to create an account with both a password and a secret phrase.
  3. Go the App Store on your iPhone and search for “Firefox Home” or install it directly from iTunes.
  4. Launch Firefox Home on your iPhone. You’ll be prompted to enter your Firefox Sync account info. Enter your username, password and Secret Phrase and tap “Done.”
  • Enjoy!
