Mozilla’s was named officially for Firefox OS. The proposal is to lead to a smartphone operating system completely based on next-generation programming language of the Internet, HTLM5 combining fuzzy navigation between applications and use of the platform in offline mode.
The product will be launched initially in Brazil, in January this year, through a partnership with Telefonica. The CEO of the Mozilla Foundation, Gary Kovacs, was recently in the country to present the proposal. “Mozilla is the open web. Our sole purpose is to ensure that it is open and accessible to all the world, regardless of nationality and language. Internet is the most important mechanism of connection, and concern that is controlled by only one company, “said Kovacs at the time. The idea is that, based on HTML5, the applications are universal, no longer casts for operating systems, as with iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and everyone else.
Mapping the footsteps of the main Firefox around the globe, operators Deutsche Telekom, Etisalat, Smart, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefonica and Telenor are supporting OS Firefox opened as an exciting new candidate for the smartphone market. In a statement, they also identified the potential of technology to deliver compelling experiences on smartphones with attainable prices.
