We heard that Mozilla are getting started to do the Chrome OS-Like operation system for Mobile and Tablets and most of people saying Mozilla aren’t copy-cats as they seemed copying the same operation system as Google Chrome OS. The Mozilla Foundation said that “complete, standalone operating system for the open web” as it running on HTM5 Mobile App. The operation system codenamed “boot to gecko” will be designed to work on Tablets and Mobile devices and it works “booting to the web” when the tablet switched on you will redirect to the Mozilla’s booting logo till it completed booting and you will be redirect to the main screen quickly, The Mozilla has featured Operation System checkout below the details of options
- New web APIs: build prototype APIs for exposing device and OS capabilities to content (Telephony, SMS, Camera, USB, Bluetooth, NFC, etc.)
- Privilege model: making sure that these new capabilities are safely exposed to pages and applications
- Booting: prototype a low-level substrate for an Android-compatible device
- Applications: choose and port or build apps to prove out and prioritize the power of the system.
We don’t think that the Mozilla will take over Android or Google Chrome OS in place, Could Android and Chrome OS are already gained their top selling on market. And Mozilla used built-in applications will be pre-installed with the new Operation System, The Mozilla has paid Android’s developers to join the Mozilla Foundation they have already got the permission and certifications from Android, And here’s the fascinating part: the OS will rely on Google’s own Android drivers and kernel to boot the device. The Developers said the could focus on many devices such as Samsung, LG or other devices and the could borrow their Application to work on Mozilla OS but nothing has been confirmed yet. Obviously, don’t hold your breath for Firebooks, as the project’s very much in its infancy, but in the meantime there’s some mighty interesting conversation happening in that discussion thread about Mozilla’s lofty end game: breaking “the stranglehold of proprietary devices over the mobile device world.”
