Mozilla & Gecko clones "'But how is it going to beat Android or iOS?' That's the reaction many people have when I tell them that I am working on Firefox OS, the new mobile operating system from Mozilla. It is a logical reaction. After all, we live in times where every major software company and its mother is releasing a mobile platform, struggling to lure developers into their new proprietary environment, APIs, libraries, etc. And indeed, many of these companies barely make it or don’t make it at all. But Firefox OS will not be directly battling against other mobile platforms. Its main objective is to change the way the world develops mobile apps, and even in the unlikely event that Firefox OS itself disappears in the process, if web-apps become mainstream, it will have succeeded."

"That is with a special plugin that you either have to install or Chrome already has it built in.

That was the old way, using Google Gears. That tool is now deprecated and Google was/is working on a HTML5 solution, with no plugins.
Yeah! When will that be done? You would think Google would be the first one with great offline capable, fast webapps that feel native.
