Firefox Mobile OS
Word on the net is this….The Firefox people have been busy at work, working on a Mobile Operating System of their own. Unlike other mobile OSes that are built on software created using Java, C,Or other similar languages, this OS is based entirely on HTML5. Yes you heard it HTML5!
Mozilla has already gained support from Telecoms companies such as ZTE Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica and Telenor. Most people feel that this OS will not be successful due to the fact that the market is already taken up by many competitors(Android and IOS being the major market share holders). The guys at Mozilla think differently because of a number of reasons….:
1) Mozilla OS is different by design
2) Easier to develop apps for it and
3) they have the backing of a number of operators and manufacturers.
