    I don't think the mobile OS market has settled down at all.

    As long as it's on your mobile phone, people will use pretty much any OS.

    One thing that makes this interesting is the (sole?) use of HTML5 for applications including those that have to touch the deeper framework.

    This could provide ramifications if it develops a means to get deeper into the system securely with HTML5 applications on the possibilities of desktop applications and servers.

    It runs in line with trying to move applications to cloud apps, could theoretically push into a "write-once-run-anywhere" scenario that Java failed to fully attend, and otherwise possibly reduce the barrier for programs and even reduce resources/footprint. Possibly.

    I do hope that Firefox is able to benefit from this in the way of cold, hard cash because if this is what they can do with their current budget, I wonder what they could do with a larger revenue stream!

    Lol. I used to use my desktop as a phone back in the dial up days. I remember trying to use the built in speakers and microphone on my monitor, and getting a lot of feedback.

    Does anyone have any screenshots what this new Firefox OS is going to look like and what features it will have.

    You can get a picture of it here (). Applications are supposed to be all HTML5.
