Firefox was one of the most popular browser but it lost market share ever Google Chrome came into picture. According to StatCounter, 53% of the desktop users prefer to go with Google Chrome while only 18% uses Firefox. When it comes to mobile devices, Firefox is now where in the frame as top mobile browser.

For years, Firefox wasn’t allow to get into iOS App Store as Apple didn’t allow the third party iOS browsers to use their own page rendering engine, infact they were forced to use Nitro JavaScript and WebKit engine. It was only last year that Mozilla announced that Firefox version for iPhones and iPads is in work.
