In a furious battle with Apple, Mozilla is refusing to build Firefox for the iOS because of Apple’s continued antagonistic attitude against third party browsers. There will be no open source Firefox browser versions for Apple as long as the company continues to cold shoulder third party browsers.
Mozilla has denounced Apple’s policy and claimed that it in the future, ‘it will not be offering any browser version, feature, or plug-in to Apple’. Apple has declined to comment on the issue and the makers of Opera and Dolphin have revealed no plans, for or against the Cupertino Company. Android meanwhile enjoys a rich market full of enhancements and updates with its more tolerant third party policy.
