This week, Mozilla announced that they will halt all work on Firefox for Windows Phone 7.

Despite all of the work they’ve put into building “an awesome browser on Windows Phone 7,” Mozilla’s Director of Mobile Stuart Parmenter said, “because we don’t know if or when Microsoft will release a native development kit, we are putting our Windows Mobile development on hold.”

Parmenter said that he expects to be able to use much of the knowledge and work for other platforms, but for the foreseeable future Firefox for Windows Phone 7 is dead.

“While I hope that we do see Microsoft provide us with a way to build Firefox for Windows Phone 7,” Parmenter explained, “we will continue to focus on the things that we can control: building a great consumer product on both Android and Maemo.”
