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."

It just seems like a duplication of functionality. PhoneGap works well enough, and webOS and Chrome OS are essentially "Boot to WebKit". And then there's Mer/Tizen/Mee-whataver. It's charming Mozilla are so dedicated to Gecko, but the market doesn't give a toss about rendering engines. The smartphone-for-featurephone-money idea has legs, but the OS is more me-too than me-go.
