The web browser, previously only available as a preview in New Zealand, can now be downloaded for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices worldwide.

On November 12, Mozilla updated its Firefox web browser, and iOS users can now download the app on the App Store. The update has been in testing mode since September, when it was released in a preview format exclusively in New Zealand.

This update is a significant turnaround for the nonprofit browser developer Mozilla who, until last December, refused to develop software for the App Store following web engine disagreements with Apple.

Users will need at least iOS 8.2 software to use the app on their devices.
