It's been a while since we first heard about Firefox Home, an app which allows you to sync your desktop browsing session to your iPhone, but it's been approved by Apple and is available in the iTunes store now.


The app is free and basically means that your iPhone will show your "Firefox history, bookmarks and open tabs, just as you had left them on your desktop computer." The Mozilla Blog explains how it works:

  1. Install Firefox Sync, a free add-on for Firefox, on your desktop.
  2. Restart Firefox and follow prompts to create an account with both a password and a secret phrase.
  3. Go the App Store on your iPhone and search for "Firefox Home" or install it directly from iTunes.
  4. Launch Firefox Home on your iPhone. You'll be prompted to enter your Firefox Sync account info. Enter your username, password and Secret Phrase and tap "Done."
  5. Enjoy!

Seems simple enough. [iTunes]
