Mozilla devs working to 'reinvent' tablet browser for iOS

New browser built from ground up for touchscreens

Mozilla is working to re-imagine the web browser for tablet interfaces, with the apparent aim of grabbing a significant share of the iPad browsing market.

As The Verge detailed, Junior would represent Mozilla's first big step into the iOS sector, where the company currently has only an iPhone-optimized companion app that syncs tabs from a desktop but relies on Safari for actual browsing functionality.
