Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser, has acquired the read-later service Pocket for an undisclosed sum. The deal files as Mozilla’s first acquisition and was confirmed by both Mozilla and Pocket.
I’ve been a longtime Pocket user because their elegantly designed cross-platform apps let me easily save stripped down versions of articles from online publications for reading later, even without an Internet connection.
Pocket will continue on as a wholly-owned, independent subsidiary of Mozilla. Pocket has native apps on App Store and Mac App Store, plus a browser extension.
After an apparent soft launch back in September, the team at Mozilla has fully taken the wraps off of its Firefox web browser for iOS. The popular browser is now available globally, and for all iOS devices as a universal app.

Mozilla has long stayed away from bringing its Firefox web browser to iOS, however it’s looking to change its plans to “be where our users are”.
The company’s release manager, Lukas Bakk, took to Twitter on Tuesday announcing the company will develop Firefox for iOS. He didn’t provide word on when it may be released, or if it’s even in development yet, but it’s definitely comforting words for the Firefox fans out there – which includes our own Sebastien Page.
