My thoughts on the Apple walled garden after spending a couple of years in the iOS ecosystem.

@kev Do note that you were NOT allowed to choose Firefox; you chose a skin over Apple's Safari engine. When web tech moves forward, you wait to see if/when you can have it.

@vandys I don’t understand the point you’re trying to make about Firefox? Is this the default browser thing?

On tech moving forward - you’re missing the point. It’s about a person’s needs, not having the latest an “greatest”. If Android does x and iOS can’t do it, so what? As long as it meets my needs, I couldn’t care less.

@kev @vandys I'm pretty sure alternative web engines are banned on iOS, so even the firefox app just uses the same web engine as safari under the hood.

@kev @alphazino I ran into it when we had a project fail due to a lack of WebRTC under iOS. We had Android/MacOS/Windows/Linux covered, but would've had to fund an iOS developer too.
