Essentially Firefox Home for iPhone saves history, passwords, tabs and favorites from one’s Firefox web browser and makes all of the aforementioned items conveniently available on your iPhone or iPod touch. The app works by pushing your browsing information to the cloud, synching them with your iPhone or iPod touch, making for a seamless browsing experience on the go. It’s a free app, and a must have for any Firefox user with an iPhone and/or iPod touch.
Firefox Home has just updated its app, making it easier to use for those that don’t speak English, I know, I know, who would’ve thought English wasn’t a universal language? In particular, version 1.0.2 has added the following features:
- Available in 15 different languages, English, Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish
- Ability to type in the site’s URL into the Search Bar or search for an unknown term
- For advanced users running their own Firefox Sync server, you can now set up Firefox Home to connect to your custom server.
Pretty nice updates. Here are some shots of the new search feature in action:
