Mozilla Releases Preview of Firefox Browser for iOS

For years tech fans & web designers have been anticipating the release of Mozilla’s beloved Firefox on mobile devices. And for years there hasn’t been much of an answer – until now.

According to Mozilla, the first round of public testing has started in New Zealand.

People with iOS devices can download the public release of Firefox and test it on their iPhone or iPad.

Mozilla’s goal is to collect feedback from one country to understand what’s working & what’s not. The goal is to slowly roll out Firefox with a few rounds of testing before releasing it globally.
