"Seven weeks after Mozilla first announced Firefox Home for the iPhone, the open source browser maker has made good on its pledge to deliver a Firefox-synchronization app for the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users.

"The free Firefox Home app isn't a browser; instead, it's intended to enable Apple mobile device users to pick up where their PC browsing activities left off. As a result, open tabs, bookmarks and browser histories from a user's desktop version of Firefox will be carried over onto their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, where they will be able to continue surfing the Web using Apple's Safari browser.

"But while Firefox Home will synchronize Firefox browsing activities from the desktop to the iPhone, it won't work in reverse: Apple iOS device users will not be able to synchronize their browsing activities back to their Windows, Linux and Mac desktops."
