Mozilla Joins iOS With Junior

Junior MozillaAfter years of sitting on the iPad sidelines Mozilla, the non-profit behind FireFox is set to enter Apple’s mobile browsing world with a product dubbed Junior. This will be Mozilla’s first crack at creating a Web browser for the titan of tablets and it appears the company is opting to build one from scratch rather than provide a different version of their existing product.

The reason Mozilla is eschewing the traditional browser format is the firm believes that mobile Web surfing is different than computer surfing and thus requires a different browser. Junior does away with the familiar tabs and URL bar in favor of a more minimalistic design. The control buttons are ergonomically placed based on how a user would typically hold an iPad. There is also a heavy dose of swipe technology for navigation.

There’s no official word on a release, and Mozilla is on record as saying the current version they have demoed is merely a beta version. However, rumors suggest a Q4 release in time for the holidays.
