Mozilla has launched a new project called “Boot to Gecko”. The aim of this project is to develop acomplete operating system for the open web. Unlike Google’s version of a web-based OS – the Chrome OS – Mozilla’s version is not aimed at netbooks. With Boot to Gecko, Mozilla is aiming for smartphones – and Android forms a part of their plan.
… Boot to Gecko, if it succeeds, holds a lot of promise. Because it will be a web-based OS, Boot to Gecko holds the promise to fully open up smartphones by making web apps truly competitive with native apps.
