Mozilla & Gecko clones "Over the past year and a half I've been spending more and more of my time working with Mozilla's latest project, Firefox OS. During that time I've fallen in love with the project and what it stands for, in ways that I've never experienced with a technology platform before." I'm not convinced just yet. I hope it succeeds, but I just doubt it actually will.

Even though I get paid to develop mostly web applications, for me HTML is for documents.

It is insane what people try to bend the browsers to do, spending sometimes days fighting with HTML+CSS+JavaScript, for what would be a few function calls in a native application.

And in the end they complain that it still does not look integrated. Of course it does not, HTML is for documents!

But at the end of the day it is all about the money, so the customer gets what s/he asks for.

This only works until the handset manufacturers start blacklisting web sites.
