    Firefox is open source, I would like to see it on the touch. It would be cool if it also had Java and Flash in it.

    Really, you must be thick.

    Check out the Source, Its ridiculously large and by no means optimised for portable systems.

    Portable Safari works just fine, Cheers.

    What makes firefox any better than safari aside from the cooler logo?

    That is not possible. As stated earlier, the code is huge. The browser download itself is 50 MB. Plus, Flash and Java are plug-ins. They do NOT come with the browser. Even if the browser was ported to the ipod touch, you would not have flash or java.

    True, see http://www.apple.com/safari
    and see how safari owns opera, firefox, and the lowly IE 7!
