"Allows users to synchronise their desktop history and bookmarks with their device"

Firefox Home
Cost: Free | Developer: Mozilla Corporation | Platform: iPhone | Version 1.1.1 | 6.5 MB | iOS 3.1+

If you have shelved Internet Explorer or Safari on your PC in preference of Firefox, then you will be happy to hear that there is a mobile companion available for your smart phone.

While not a Web browser itself, Firefox Home for iPhone allows users to synchronise their desktop history and bookmarks with their device.

You can also synchronise the tabs you have open on your desktop PC and have the same tabs available for instant browsing from your iPhone.

If you want to save yourself the hassle of retyping and adding the numerous bookmarks to your iPhone that you frequent on your desktop Firefox, then Firefox Home will save you a lot of time.

The app is particularly useful for people who have collected a large amount of links during their desktop browsing sessions and want to access them on their iPhone while on the move.

Pros: Useful for keeping all of your favourite web site links available on your iPhone as well as on your PC.

Cons: It’s not the Firefox web browser that we’re all waiting for.

Verdict: Although limited in function, Firefox Home is a useful companion in ensuring that your favourite bookmarks are available on the move.
