Mozilla & Gecko clones "Over the past year and a half I've been spending more and more of my time working with Mozilla's latest project, Firefox OS. During that time I've fallen in love with the project and what it stands for, in ways that I've never experienced with a technology platform before." I'm not convinced just yet. I hope it succeeds, but I just doubt it actually will.

I see a contradiction in the fact that they use HTML5 and JS and that they want it to run on cheap hardware as well as Android.

I highly doubt the claim in the article about javascript game running faster than Android native games. I _really_ want to see some proof of that, because that's really not what I have seen. I mean even on the desktop, HTML5/JS is slow when compared to other technologies.

Also, it's really time for the web browser developers to start working on a real VM for the browser instead of hacking on top of JS. .NET seems like a good example of how you can have a common API shared across multiple languages.
