The Mozilla team is definitely looking to the future. They plan on releasing their popular Firefox Home app to BlackBerry smartphones. Firefox Home is a free cloud-based application that lets you access your Firefox desktop history, bookmarks and tabs right on your phone.

The Firefox Home app is also getting updated from the previous version found on the iPhone. Mozilla says they are also including:

  • Synchronize passwords to your phone so you don’t have to type them in anymore.
  • Bring other Firefox customizations such as search engine preferences.
  • Bring your Firefox  Panorama settings and tab groups to your phone.
  • Some of our more experimental features will allow you to easily share links, reviews and comments with your friends on
  • Twitter, Facebook or other social networks directly from Firefox Home.
  • Build the ability to provide feedback and get help with any issues directly from within Firefox Home.
This should be a great stepping stone for BlackBerry users until (hopefully) the Mozilla team develops the Firefox web browser for BlackBerry.
