Original OSNews Interviews A Hong Kong-based startup run by former Mozilla President Li Gong aims to take on Android with its new Web-based operating system, H5OS. Similar to the Firefox operating system from Mozilla, H50S is based on HTML5, a website development language that tries to give Web apps the same capabilities as so-called native applications that are downloaded to a device like the iPhone. More on H5OS here.

Today is a different world: American backdoors and mass surveillance are a matter of public knowledge, as is the fact that American intelligence listen to world leaders phones. If you were a Chinese political or military leader, how soon would you want a non-American phone? Yesterday would be not soon enough.

So Firefox is non-american, but android is not? Not sure how you determine weather a system is American or not.

I'd recommend doing everything from scratch. Non Western compatible phone network, non western cell towers, non western chip design.

I mean if you go full paranoid and you have the means, you go full F-ing paranoid. None of this half ass BS like using firefox OS.

But of course, I'm American... so you logically can't take my advise.
