Mozilla Working on “Junior” Browser for iPad
MacRumors writes today that according to The Verge, Mozilla is currently developing a more basic version of its Firefox browser for iPad. As MacRumors notes, despite previously having released Firefox Home for iOS, which is an app designed to sync your Firefox histories, bookmarks, and tabs from computer to iOS, Mozilla has previously stated that it did not intend to release an iOS version of the full Firefox browser, because of “technical and logistical restrictions.” However, it would seem that instead of releasing Firefox for iOS, Mozilla is looking to release an entirely different browser that has been tailored specifically for iOS. Currently known as “Junior,” the browser is being designed with a view to simplifying and improving browsing the web on your iPad. According to MacRumors, Junior is a full-screen browser without tabs that uses two navigation buttons at the side of the screen. It will also support the creation of several different accounts, to suit those households where several people share use of the iPad. MacRumors says that Junior is still at the early stages of its development, so don’t expect it to be appearing in the App Store any time soon.
