Re(2): First look: Mozilla's mobile Fennec browser

Posted by: Nathan Willis on October 23, 2008 02:51 AM
It has nothing to do with your Mac. Your Mac is not an iPhone. Apps can only run on the iPhone if they are developed by people who have agreed to the terms of Apple's developer program and NDA, and then they can only be distributed by Apple in the iPhone App Store, and then only those applications that Apple agrees to distribute. Plus, specifically as it relates to a Web browser: Apple will not approve an application if it "duplicates the functionality" of one of Apple's own applications, such as the mobile version of Safari.
