Mozilla developer Mike “schrep” Schroepfer has started discussing the possibilities of a mobile Firefox in a recent blog.
“Schroepfer hinted at a desktop and mobile browsing experience that could be bridged to build a better experience for both. He imagined a world in which bookmarks, history, and extensions from Firefox on the desktop work on a mobile device.
Mozilla plans to give device manufacturers the best of both worlds, Schroepfer said: shared investment in the open-source project plus the flexibility they need to customize the browser for their devices.“
The goal of making extensions that work on the desktop and on a mobile platform sounds quite challenging. The real limitations might be in the the type of mobile hardware that's available by the time a mobile Firefox is ready sometime in 2008.
