Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla today announced Boot to Gecko , a very ambitious project that aims to create a 'complete, standalone operating system for the open web'. This project's goal is to develop what seems like a ChromeOS-like operating system where all the apps are based on HTML5."

I have never really understood the drive to use HTML/JS for user interfaces or "browsers is the OS" platforms. We did it because that's what we needed to do get on as many screens as possible, which is not the issue in mobile/smartphone development.

I know alot of unemployed web people are looking for work but.. talk about your impedance mismatch. Just my $0.02.
