404: Firefox NOT Coming to iPhone, Sorry Kiddies

The folks at Mozilla are still fuming mad over Safari-gate. The developers behind the popular open source browser Firefox stated flatly that no efforts will be made to port Firefox to iPhone, blaming Apple's Gestapo-like restrictive software license.

So this means I can't look forward to a browser that consumes half my memory and grinds to a halt on AJAX-heavy websites? Tragic.

iPhone users can now more easily access and update their Twitter feeds thanks to Twitter's efforts to improve support for mobile browsers, including Safari. Now when you access Twitter.com from your iPhone, you are greeted with a mobile friendly version of the service instead of the standard "pinch me please" desktop version.

Apple Releases Safari 3.1 - MobileSafari Touch Next?

Apple has released their latest, greatest, fastest, and coolest new browser yet -- Safari 3.1 (big brother to the MobileSafari Touch browser built into the iPhone).

Safari is based on Apple's open-source WebKit (a branch of the Konqueror/KHTML engine), the same foundation Nokia, Google's upcoming Android, and even Adobe's AIR runtime get their render on with.

The iPhone started life as a "Safari Pad"?

The New York Times is reporting that the iPhone started its life out as a "Safari Pad". An Internet tablet if you will. Once Steve Jobs saw it, he used his panache and morphed it into an iPhone. The author also goes on to say that when he spoke to Steve Jobs at the recent MacWorld in January, he asked if there would be a larger form-factor iPod touch device. Steve Jobs replied,

Google Sees 50 times more iPhone Searches

We've heard it before, Google has an iPhone fixation. Well it's looking like that fixation works both ways - apparently the earlier numbers we saw that said the iPhone was on the web more than any other mobile web browser were, how shall we say it? ....Ridiculously conservative.

Google sees 50 times more web searches from iPhones than they do from any other mobile browser:

Adobe Flash Support Coming to iPhone, Ending YouTube Envy

What feature request has been on the lips of every iPhone user since the idolized gadget first came galloping out the gate? I'll give you a hint, it starts with the letter "F", and is the same thing your inebriated Uncle Frank does at family get togethers after knocking back one too many martinis. Of course, I'm talking about Flash.

GearLive claims that Apple will be announcing Adobe Flash for WebKit (aka mobile Safari). There have been rumors to this effect for some time, but with the blessed arrival of the much anticipated SDK now only days away, this seems plausible. Still, I wouldn't start bookmarking YouTube.com on your iPhone just yet. Let's wait for Apple make this rumor a reality.

Mozilla Responds to iPhone

It seems that Mozilla has finally acknowledged the need for a mobile browser on the mozilla codebase that isn't wreteched. PC Advisor reports that the mozilla foundation will be putting resources towards a mobile browser. And they didn't act until now on the mobile browsing kit on the iPhone, 3 months after WebKit shines on the iPhone. To add insult to injury, Nokia has been using Apple's WebKit, the browsing engine that powers Safari on the iPhone, instead of anything based off of Mozilla's code, though Nokia also has a mozilla-basbed browser on their N800 tablet.

Mundu IM: iPhone Edition, Chat Till Your Thumbs Bleed

Mundu has a long pedigree in the world of business-class mobile instant messaging software. I have used their Mobile Messenger client on PalmOS and Windows Mobile - it works like magic. So it didn't take long for their developers to show some iPhone love.

The company has announced a web based service that fully supports iPhone, via Safari of course (we've heard this line before). To access the web client simply point your iPhone to iphone.mundu.com. Login to any existing IM accounts (Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, or Windows Live Messenger protocols supported), and text your way to repetitive stress injury.

The service is in beta, so don't look surprised when Safari chokes and drops you back to the homescreen.
