Mozilla Firefox OS for smartphones revealed
Let’s do a quick headcount of the current major players, we have Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS and Microsoft’s Windows Phone – the big three. Let’s throw in RIM’s Blackberry OS to the mix. Add those up and what you get is a very brutal and unforgiving mobile market.
Mozilla seems to have a lot of confidence though when they decided to develop their own â€œexperimentalâ€ mobile platform called the Firefox OS, AKA Boot to Gecko (B2G). Screenshots have been revealed giving us a glimpse on what we can expect from this upcoming OS.
Take a look below:
The whole OS is based on Linux and Gecko, and runs apps in HTML 5. The Foundation claims that it is faster, lighter and more open than Android. Personally it looks like a mix of Android and Meego. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below.
