With all the negative publicity Apple is getting these days, one small ray of light has managed to shine through, Firefox Home is now available at the App Store.
Of course a full Firefox for the iPhone would have been perfection, but Apple’s policies wont see that happen. Instead iPhone users have to suffice with Firefox Home which allows Firefox Sync users to take their data with them.
Firefox Sync, earlier called Weave is a Mozilla technology which allows Firefox users to synchronize their Firefox personalizations to the cloud. The data it syncs includes not only your bookmarks, but also your browsing history and open tabs!

Two Firefox profiles which are connected to the same Firefox Sync account will show the same results in the awesomebar (the Firefox addressbar) so you can save a lot of time. Firefox Sync technology will be integrated in future versions of Firefox starting with 4. Now you can access the same awesomebar on your iPhone as a separate app, and access your tabs open on your computer.
