Mozilla announced that its Firefox browser is now available for iOS worldwide. It supports iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

The browser made its iOS debut in September in New Zealand, but has now expanded to everywhere else.

Mozilla says in a blog post:

Firefox for iOS lets you take your favorite browser with you wherever you go with the Firefox features you already love including smart and flexible search, intuitive tab management, syncing with Firefox Accounts and Private Browsing.

You can use Firefox Accounts to sync your browsing history, tabs and passwords and bring bookmarks from your other devices to Firefox for iOS.

It includes search suggestions, visual tabs, and a private browsing option. As the company notes, for easy access, you can add the browser to the dock at the bottom of your home screen.

As others have pointed out, Firefox had to run the WebKit rendering engine instead of its own Gecko Engine to get on iOS as it's the only one Apple will allow.

You can currently find Firefox in the App Store.
