Competition in the tech world is getting intense. Every company needs each other’s support to survive. The result? We saw iOS apps coming to Android, and now, browsers are making themselves available on the iOS.
Firefox has been trying every tactic to recapture the market. We have seen how literally pushed the browser out of the market. After rolling out the Windows 10-friendly version 40 and protecting Android devices from malware, Firefox is now moving to iOS. The browser was launched on App Store on Thursday. If you are an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch user, then you can download the browser for free.
Google Chrome, Safari and Opera are other browsers that are already available on iOS devices. To stay ahead of the competition, here are some of the features that Firefox will offer its mobile users:
1.Visual Thumbnails: Firefox will keep a track of your open pages, making it easier for you to switch between tabs.
2. Numbered Tabs: Every tab you open will be numbered.
3. Choose Default Search Engine: Firefox for iOS allows you to choose your default search engine (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, etc.).
4. Private Browsing: iOS users can now choose to privately browse on Firefox. This will not allow the browser to save history or cookies. It will also allow you to delete all your private data with one tap.
5. Sync with PC: Firefox will also let you sync your tabs, passwords and browsing history from PC as well as other devices in which you are using the browser.
Firefox is not the first to enter the iOS market nor the one to offer services others do not. So how well this browser does on iOS devices is still a mystery.
