Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

HTML5 performs badly on any hardware. Hence the reason why everyone first gets excited about HTML5 app development, then realizes it's a nightmare and dumps it.

No.

A browser rendering and displaying HTML5 content can perform badly.

A non-trvial app is usually more then displaying some fancy HTML. Ever maintained a large Javascript codebase?
