Also from the official announcement (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2023/11/28/open-extensions-on-firefox-for-android-debut-december-14-but-you-can-get-a-sneak-peek-today/ ):

Starting December 14, 2023, extensions marked as Android compatible on addons.mozilla.org (AMO) will be openly available to Firefox for Android users.

“We’ve been so impressed with developer enthusiasm and preparation,” said Giorgio Natili, Firefox Director of Engineering. “Just a few weeks ago it looked like we might have a couple hundred Android extensions for launch, but now we can safely say AMO will have 400+ new Firefox for Android extensions available on December 14. We couldn’t be more thankful to our developer community for embracing this exciting moment.”

    The EU is up in arms and the browser question is going to be handled through the DMA. The legal process has been going on since the summer and it’s hilarious.

      Apple argues ‘Look, those Safaris on iOS, iPadOS, MacOS, TvOS, WatchOS are TOTALLY DIFFERENT PRODUCTS and none of them have enough users in the EU for you to even think about regulating us, alright? We’re a tiny startup! Will nobody think of the children?!?’ (I paraphrase somewhat)."

      lol

        And their ads literally say “Same Safari Different Device”.

      Ive been waiting for this day ever since Apple announced that you wouldn’t be able to install any software you want on your own piece of hardware. I’m glad that someone has finally started cracking down on this. Just wish it had happened 15 years earlier.
