Firefox is a popular browsing alternative with some

Those recycling used mobiles for a new smartphone have been advised on what plans Mozilla have for their web browsing software.

In an interview with the company's chief executive officer John Lilly, technology news and comment resource GigaOM attempted to find out if the firm's Firefox system would feature on other models any time soon.

Speaking to the publication at this year's Play conference hosted by the University of Berkeley's Haas School of Business, the representative said Apple iPhone 3G users familiar with its product could expect something soon.

"Mozilla will release an app to the iPhone App Store in the next few weeks," he confirmed, adding that the browsing package would "surprise people".

However, he admitted the firm faced the same problems in the mobile market as it had done in the desktop sector - having to take on the likes of Microsoft at their own game.

Current options for mobile users - in addition to the aforementioned group's Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox - is Opera Mini, as well as the standard Apple browser that comes with the iPhone 3G.
