Mozilla Firefox OS (Boot2Gecko)


We all want to be creators & build
a thing that makes it easier for others to code.

We don't even follow up any longer if they are used or not,
the concept of having built them makes us already feel great.

Mozilla Firefox OS

  • Building a complete, standalone operating system
    for the open web.
  • The web is the platform; making apps First Class Citizens.
  • The framework for the Open Web Device platform was introduced at the Mobile World Congress last Feb 2012
    in Barcelona, Spain.

Why Choose Firefox OS?

  • According to Telefonica:"Firefox OS phones will be 10 times cheaper than an iPhone."
  • Firefox OS' architecture eliminates the need for apps to be built on platform-specific native API's.

Interface flexibility

Gaia concepts

How to play with Firefox OS…

  • Run GAIA in Firefox Nightly (simplest way)
  • Use a desktop simulator (OSX / Linux)
  • Build your own device (very hard indeed)
