Mozilla's Firefox for iOS has finally received an update with a set of features tailored for the iPad tablet, such as tab management, split-screen support, single-click private browsing, a comprehensive set of keyboard shortcuts (for those using an external keyboard with their iPad), and more.

Although Mozilla launched the Firefox browser for iOS back in November 2015, a version to take full advantage of the iPad's larger screen and different way of use was not released until the end of last week. Now, those who use an Apple tablet can take full advantage of the Firefox browser that is not just a larger version of its sibling for iPhone handsets, but looks and feels "like it was custom made for a tablet" instead.

Without further ado, here are the highlights of the Mozilla Firefox for iPad browser:

  • Split-screen support for easier file/link sharing, taking notes, and more.
  • Tab management for those who want to take full advantage of the additional screen estate at their disposal on an iPad.
  • One-click private browsing mode (switch located in the lower left corner of the main window).
  • Outlook users can set Firefox as their default browser to open email links.
  • Keyboard shortcuts for those who use an external keyboard with their Apple slate.
  • Send Tabs for sending tabs to a phone from iPad, from desktop to phone, from iPad to desktop, and so on.

Those interested in grabbing Firefox for iOS can find it here. It might be a bit too late for Mozilla, but in the end it is better late than never. Do you think that there is still a change for this piece of code to gain a significant share in the niche of iOS software made for iPad?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
