Mozilla & Gecko clones "Still, Firefox OS could have a big impact on the Web even if it never gains significant market share. By pushing the Web forward, Mozilla is helping to ensure that mobile websites will continue to be relevant even as developers create hundreds of thousands of proprietary apps. Firefox could lose the battle for the smartphone OS market but still win the war for open standards."

Until Javascript is treated as a firts-class native system language, COMPILED to bare machine code, the performance-heavy applications (read: games) will always suck compared to platforms which allow that.

If it will not be the case, it would mean MORE CORES, MOAR RAM to run things that could be ran with half the power, if they were compiled to machine code.
