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."

FirefoxOS's use of HTML5 is not a solution looking for a problem, it is a solution to a known problem: HTML5 webpages/webapps are slow in iOS and Android browser. They are sub-par compared to native apps.


But you see, the goal of these other mobile platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, etc.) is not to enable great HTML5 apps. The goal is simply to enable great apps.

Exactly. I don't see why they'd even want to implement all these Html5-abilities, simply because it would bring regular Webapps closer to their native apps.
