Firefox for iOS

Hi.. I just want to say that firefox for iOS is now available on the App Store. It is easy to navigate and very accessible using VoiceOver.. Thanks..



Hi. Does this mean that the WebVisum devs will be able to get WebVisum working on iOS?

Don't no..

Hi.. I don't no about it. But i'll try to use webvisum.. I will update here if i find something new. Thanks..

I doubt web visum will work

I doubt web visum will work as they need access to the clipboard and that is part of ios's core, so no I don't think webvisum can ever work on ios.



I'm disappointed to see that Firefox doesn't support downloads. I guess I shouldn't be surprised as this is using Apple's web engine. Is it possible to download any kind of file with this or is it just like Safari where it only streams mp3 files?


I think we can't download using safari or firefox. Because Apple has limited access to it...


Lots of apps can access the clipboard.

Any benefits?

What are the benefits, if any, of using this over Safari?

My opinion

I think this firefox is nearly as good as Safari. For the benefits is the same like Safari.. May be the other friends have different opinion. Thanks.

Firefox without webvisom is mere waste.

I fffeel firefox without webvisom for the blind is mere waste. While safari is giving the same benefits. Sorry if I'm wrong. this is how I feel personally.


My thoughts

First, if you try to download a file it comes up with a page saying that downloads are coming, so we can expect this to be fixed soon.

My opinion, which you can also read in FF"s app directory entry is that if you use firefox on windows a lot, you're gonna love the sync feature and there's also some accessibility features not present in safari, like the beeping progress bar as the page loads. However, because of limitations put in by Apple, Firefox can't use any ad blocking extensions you may have installed or access your existing bookmarks you may have added to Safari. Extensions aren't yet supported, but will most likely be coming. Whether we'll have webvisum? Probably not, because even on the desktop Firefox it hasn't been updated in years, and the desktop firefox will soon be undergoing internal changes that will break a lot of extensions unless updated and somehow I don't think WV will be getting that treatment there.

I was only going to comment

I was only going to comment and say if they've wanted to, they could add Webvisum to the apps store, then it probably would work on iOS. Look at the purify blocker app; it blocks adds. Maybe it works on a global level. Chrome Firefox and Safari are under the same Engine but nevertheless it's still pretty cool.

Actually I think purify onluy

Actually I think purify onluy works for safari It cannot work in firefox as I don't think that can ever be supported.
