Mozilla & Gecko clones "Jay Sullivan, Mozilla's VP of Product, has revealed that the not-for-profit organization is not going to build an iOS version of its Firefox web browser as long as Apple doesn't mend its unfriendly ways towards third party browsers." So that would most likely be never.

Apple's reason is completely technical. JIT engines are not allowed at all.

That's not a technical reason. For it to be a technical reason, there would have to be a full explanation as to why they do not allow JIT runtimes. Until then, it's a political restriction. They don't want someone like Google showing them up with V8 as opposed to Apple's own js runtime. It really is that simple.

I provided the rationale, many times. If you (or others on OSNews) don't want to acknowledge that it in fact exists, then that's between you and your delusions.
