Mozilla told attendees at SXSW why there's no Firefox for iOS.
If you're an iPhone user hankering after Firefox on your phone, you're going to be waiting a while. Mozilla this week revealed that it won't be pushing out a version of Firefox for iOS until Apple changes its ways.
Firefox uses the Gecko engine while Apple's Safari uses WebKit. Clearly Mozilla is waiting until it can do things its own way. Unfortunately, anyone waiting for Apple to change its ways to accommodate others, particularly its rivals, might be waiting a long time.
