Mozilla Firefox could come to iPhone and iPad with its own engine, before Apple allows it

Mozilla, the company behind the popular Firefox web browser, is already working on a way to bring its Gecko browser engine to iPhone and iPad in the hope that Apple will one day allow it to do so.

While there are already third-party web browsers available in the App Store, including Firefox, they must all use Apple’s WebKit browsing engine. That’s a requirement for web browsers to be allowed into the App Store and it’s something some people aren’t happy about. They believe it stifles competition.
