Mozilla has added a number of mobile and developer enhancements to its planned Firefox browser updates.
The company said that the Firefox roadmap update would seek to add support for additional platforms as well as services and developer tools used to create web-based applications.
The updates are part of what Mozilla describes as a "people-centred" platform for its browser.
"A people-centred experience powered by the web that includes mobile devices does not exist and is sorely needed," the company said.
"Mozilla must lead the way, because we are the only organisation who has no interest in or motivation to 'own' the user; we believe the user is sovereign."
Among the planned updates will be an overhaul of the Mozilla for Android browser. The company said that it would be releasing a major update which would cut start-up times and accelerate interface responsiveness for smartphones and tablets.
Mozilla also plans to further integrate the BrowserID security platform. The browser-embedded tool is intended to simplify management of credentials and protection of information and allows users to sign in to sites by authenticating an email address.
"BrowserID makes it easier for users to register at new websites and subsequently log back into those sites, using any email address they choose," the company said.
"Users are free to use different email addresses for different purposes, and the process of signing in becomes easier and safer."
