Is there room for another phone OS?

Mozilla, the non-profit foundation behind the popular Firefox web browser, is getting into phones. But it's not stopping at web browsers — it's launching an entire phone operating system.

It's a long haul that can chew up funds. It's not really clear from this article what their point of difference would be so we'll have to wait and see.

Their Android browser runs pretty poorly, and their desktop browser increasingly so, so I wouldn't be optimistic.

If it's anything like their mobile browser it will be complete s***.

Sure isn't!


(PS Best concept ever, too bad none of it works in reality, well at least not yet)

Does anyone even use Firefox these days? It used to be good back in the day, but Chrome just blitzes it on Windows (and Safari on OSX).

Its designed to be for developing markets (at least initially) everything is HTML based.

Its also looking like a piece of s*** at least in its current form.


The SGS IV is not going to be running it :D

I sure do, switched a few weeks ago as Chrome was annoying the crap out of me with its consistent locking and slow browsing.

I'm interested more in the Ubuntu phones then the Firefox ones, but I'll definitely keep an eye on both as it could be interesting.

If you're managing to make Chrome slow down and lock up, you're doing the internet wrong.

It even has its own task manager to tell you which tabs and exactly which extensions are using what percentage of your CPU, memory and bandwidth.

How can a totally subjective topic be won with a 'blitz' ? They are the same in every functional way except for branding.

While I agree that it's not a 'blitz', I also don't think it's totally subjective.

I mean sure, they're equal on basic browser functionality, but you can easily compare things like program load time, web page render time and javascript execution speed quite objectively.

Personally I use both for different things, though I use Chrome the vast majority of the time. For me Chrome is a faster, leaner, cleaner, prettier browser, and Firefox is a much more customisable one.
