PRAGUE, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Salsita Software, a leading authority on browser extensions, today announced the private beta of its Kitt mobile browser for iPhone. Kitt brings the advantages of browser extensions to the hundreds of millions of iPhone users around the world. An estimated 33% of Chrome users and a staggering 85% of Firefox users have at least one extension installed. Until now, these users had no way to use their favorite browser extensions on the iPhone.
Kitt is the first iPhone browser to include a general-purpose browser extension framework. Because Kitt's extension support is based on the popular Google Chrome Platform APIs, developers can easily adapt their existing desktop extensions to run in this new mobile browser. Salsita expects pent up demand from users of the current generation of iPhone browsers to make Kitt a popular choice among both casual and business users who already use extensions daily in their desktop browsers.
Matthew Gertner, CEO of Salsita, explains: "Before Kitt, developers of popular extensions had no option but to reimplement their desktop extensions as native mobile apps. But native apps can't replace the convenience of browser extensions. Do you really want to fire up one app for your ad blocker, a second to manage passwords and yet another to compare prices while shopping?"
Salsita is working with the vendors of several popular browser extensions to make their products available on Kitt when it launches to the public this summer. The private beta now opens the product up to a wider range of developers leading up to this launch.
