Last month, the Mozilla Corporation promised to devote much more time and resources to a version of its web browser for smartphones. At that time, though, it didn’t specify which mobile operating systems would be getting a version of Firefox. This has now changed.
Christian Sejersen, who is heading up this project, has added a post to his blog that lists the OSs that are being targeted.
But it isn’t going to stop there. Sejersen also says a version for Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6 is in development that will be available soon.
Goals for Mobile Firefox
In his blog post, Sejersen lays out the current goals for Firefox mobile:
provide Mozilla’s standards-based open-source browser engine, optimized for mobile, that can be embedded by device manufacturers and others;
produce a full-featured mobile browser including support for XUL-based add-ons, delivering on Firefox’s key principles of ease-of-use, security and accessibility;
grow the Mozilla community in the mobile space;
provide tools and documentation to help developers develop, debug and deploy web applications;
do all of this work in the shared Mozilla source repositories so all platforms, desktop and mobile benefit each other
