Mozilla & Gecko clones "Still, Firefox OS could have a big impact on the Web even if it never gains significant market share. By pushing the Web forward, Mozilla is helping to ensure that mobile websites will continue to be relevant even as developers create hundreds of thousands of proprietary apps. Firefox could lose the battle for the smartphone OS market but still win the war for open standards."

For the point I was making, It doesn't matter weather you consider them "proper" or not. The apps are there, and they're not very good.


My point is that they're nothing new. Attacking Firefox OS for having them without attacking iOS or Android developers who just put a WebKit frame in an app bundle is disingenuous at best.
