Mozilla has confirmed that it is not working on an iOS version of its popular Firefox web browser.
The announcement came from Jay Sullivan, the vice president of Mozilla, during his speech at the South By Southwest conference in Austin. Sullivan made it clear that Mozilla won't roll out Firefox for iOS until and unless Apple changes its allegedly unfair treatment of third-party web browsers.
Even though the decision could be risky for Mozilla considering it is still struggling in the mobile browser market, the company is trying to make a stand against Apple, which it believes is not offering a competitive environment for third-party browsers.
Mozilla is not the only company to openly criticise Apple over this issue. Mike Taylor of Opera and David Dehgahn of the Dolphin Browser also slammed the iPhone manufacturer for allegedly trying to monopolise the iOS browser market.
