Mozilla & Gecko clones "'But how is it going to beat Android or iOS?' That's the reaction many people have when I tell them that I am working on Firefox OS, the new mobile operating system from Mozilla. It is a logical reaction. After all, we live in times where every major software company and its mother is releasing a mobile platform, struggling to lure developers into their new proprietary environment, APIs, libraries, etc. And indeed, many of these companies barely make it or don’t make it at all. But Firefox OS will not be directly battling against other mobile platforms. Its main objective is to change the way the world develops mobile apps, and even in the unlikely event that Firefox OS itself disappears in the process, if web-apps become mainstream, it will have succeeded."

I don't mean to be snide but why would you correct someone while you don't use it or even know about it.


Your point is perfectly valid.

I used to work with people who used them both extensively. I'm pretty certain that Google Docs work offline because I've seen it work myself and, on the other hand, I've seen it fail myself. Regarding Gmail, I *think* I recall seeing someone using it offline in a Chromebook, but my memory is a bit fuzzy about it and I don't know for sure.
