Mozilla announced today the Firefox 12 web browser for Apple's iOS mobile operating system supporting iPhone and iPad devices, a release that adds a bunch of new productivity features.
Firefox 12 for iOS debuts today with the promise to make your life easier by introducing a series of new features that might help you multitask better and be more productive. One of these new features is the ability to save files for offline reading. All offline downloads will be easily accessible from the main menu.
"For those times when you need to leave the office but want to read that file during your commute or at a later time, we now provide support for downloading files to your mobile devices. First download them to your device, then access and share it in the main menu where you’ll find a folder with all your downloads," said Mozilla.
A one-stop place for all your offline reading needs
Firefox 12 for iOS also introduces an all-new, one-stop menu for your offline reading needs. There you can choose what you want to do with saved links, such as to open them in Firefox, add them to your reading list or bookmarks, as well as to load them in background or send them to one of your Firefox-connected devices.
Last but not least, Firefox 12 for iOS adds a new option in the main menu to inform users if the web browser is synced or not with the rest of their devices linked to the same Firefox account. If your web browser isn't synced, you'll be able to login into your Firefox Account and start syncing all your bookmarks, passwords, history, and more.
