Mozilla & Gecko clones "Just under a month ago I wrote a personal post about my thoughts on Firefox OS and why I think there is something 'magical' about what it stands for and the possibilities it brings to the table. This post is a follow-up that aims to cover much of the same ground but with extra detail and more of a technical focus."

I think the problem in that case isn't JavaScript as such (although it do seem to have its problems), but the whole package of Html, CSS and JavaScript, which I have always thought of being a pita to work with. To me it seems that many of the extensions deal with this problem by offering shortcuts to otherwise over-complicated tasks.
Speaking of that, one thing I absolutely *don't* like about Mozilla OS is that it is just another form of lock in, being that one seems to be forced to use that hellish combination of Html, CSS and JavaScript (okay,that's overly dramatic, but I am really not a fan of these technologies, though mainly because of the less-than-intuitive way to use CSS).
