Firefox Home for iPhone gets a savvier search bar, multilingual support

Firefox's iPhone companion app gets an update that offers greater language support and an update to the search bar.

Two months ago, Firefox debuted Firefox Home , a companion app for iPhone that syncs open browser tabs, browsing history, and passwords across the mobile phone and Web.

Today, an update to Firefox Home for iPhone adds three small but notable enhancements. First, the update tweaks the app's search bar so it now seeks out a URL that you've never visited before from the app. Previously, you had to browse sites that you've visited before from the desktop browser.

The second addition makes Firefox Home operate in 15 languages, including Chinese, Spanish, and French. The final notable change will let advanced users connect the app to their custom Firefox Sync servers.
