Apple Petty Apple is petty. Amazon, Kobo, and others have changed their applications to conform to Apple's App Store rules, and if there's one word that describes the situation these booksellers are in, it's petty. Still, it's leading to good things: Kobo has announced it's going to bypass the App Store by writing an HTML5 e-reader for iOS (and thus, for other HTML5-capable mobile devices).

Actually, Apple doesn't allow Firefox, iCab/whatever on their phone.

Just Firefox Home, which uses Safari and just gets your bookmarks from 'the cloud' where your Firefox stored it with Firefox Sync and Opera Mini which uses Opera's proxy-servers to generated interactive-images of webpages.

There is only one browser on iPhone and iPad, that is Safari (AFAIK, I don't own such a device so I didn't check. This is just want I read/know about).
