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."

one of its biggest upsides is that it puts a lot of pressure on delivering top-notch performance from fairly limited hardware.

The large optimization and tuning effort required will deliver within Firefox too (the codebase is shared) and generally should raise the bar on what kind of responsiveness and performance users will expect from web pages in general.

Funny, this coming from Mozilla, which aborted two earlier mobile efforts while essentially saying "we'll just wait for more powerful hardware" - meanwhile, Webkit & Opera took over mobile (when they deliver more than enough perf, or better than FF in the experience of me and many; for other "more HTML5-like" stuff, there are apps)
