    That would be awesome if someone ported firefox to the ipod. isn't firefox open sourced? you should post something about this in the software development part of this forum. the safari should have the capability to have plugins and such also.

    I guess the question I would have is "why?" I mean you're not going to get Flash or Java any quicker. And almost all of the extensions would have to be ported which means you'd be waiting on the authors of those extensions. And Firefox isn't exactly a "lightweight" when you add all the things that make it cool...

    Oh, and Opera is already working on a port supposedly... I'm not sure what the advantage would be...

    Yea just having Firefox would be no different. If you cared then just either make a safari skin (to look like firefox) and just change the icon........no one will ever know.......muhhahahah

    if someone ask for other browser, is becouse dont like the way safari is..... and thats it, so why is these ppl keep saying that WHY, and WHY sh*t, i think if you guys dont share the opinion so why dont just stop posting and go see others threads......., im getting mad, of ppl, that the only thing the said, why you need another browser, or why you need more apps, why you gonna do this......?,
    insted of ask the question...., STAY IN THE FUC.......ING TOPIC, IS NOT THAT HARD.......?

    I would like MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER CUS IT SO COOL.

    JK I would like firefox even though it takes up a lot of memory like Derek said.

    @micaheljcaboose

    Maybe you can change mobilesafari.app to mobilefirefox.app??!?!?!?\

    I can't right now because I have the f***ING CIRCLE OF DEATH and I'm backing up my music before I do another f***ING RESTORE
