    I'm not sure who to blame here, Mozilla or RIM.

    Mozilla rules out Firefox for iPhone and BlackBerry | Electricpig

    Guess we have to pin our hopes on Skyfire.

    Not really an issue with the accelerated push to webkit bb browser + bolt + OM imo.

    Fennec is way far off from being usable anyways. The WM alpha was unusable

    Who cares?? Bolt and Opera's current browers are good enough for the time being. Next year RIM's flash enabled browser will be what we have all been waiting for. Skyfire is an afterthought.

    No big loss. Bolt works well for some sites and the native browser does a good enough job for the rest. I love FireFox but will not miss its presence on the mobile.

    Even the folks at Firefox know that the way RIM really has no future.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but when I had upgraded my Blackberry Curve 8330 to the 5.0 platform, Firefox loaded as an option, for I had seen in my browser options.

    That is just the browser identification setting. It is what the browser tell a website it is when connecting. So basically it spoofs to look like your browser is running FF to the website.

    Fennec is for Linux (and Windows Mobile).

    I love Firefox, but it has always been extremely obvious that there would never be Firefox on BlackBerry (with its current OS). I mean, Mozilla wants to have mobile addons that mimic the full desktop ones. No way that can be done (currently) on BlackBerry.

    There being no Firefox for BBs would be important only if IE were the default browser on BBs. Thankfully, we're in a different world here.

    Pretty harsh words about apple and rim. I bet opera is happy though.
