Mozilla & Gecko clones And even more news from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mozilla has announced a partnership with Telefonica and Qualcomm, which will bring Mozilla's Boot to Gecko HTML5-based mobile interface to devices later his year. This is a huge boon for the fully open source environment.

Actually B2G runs faster than Android and uses a third of the memory or so with the same apps loaded. I think its pretty good on that front.

I prefer Qml too, but, gotta give these guys credit, B2G seems pretty good.

"Same apps" is more than vague. I guess those apps are not Angry Birds and Zombiebooth, right?
Sure twitter, facebook and web mail need less resource when they are just web pages, but when real processing needs to be done JS still sucks donkey balls.
So what are "the same apps"?
