Mozilla Prepares Operating System For Tablets and Smartphones

The battle for the domain among mobile operating systems is just beginning.

The largest is still iOS, present on iPhones, iPods and iPads.Soon thereafter comes the Android system, used in almost all Apple rivals.

I would dare say that Android, developed by Google, is only in that position due to lack of competitors.

Threatened Android

In 2012, this framework will undergo a radical change.In addition to Windows 8 the Mozilla Foundation has just announced its system, christened “Boot2Gecko“, or B2G.

The B2G system follows the same philosophy as Chrome OS.Everything will be run from the Gecko browser, combining HTML5, JavaScript and applications running “in the cloud”.

Perhaps the big difference with Android is to offer a completely open system, just like Linux.

Boot2Gecko will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress, which will be held in Barcelona at the end of February.

Browser War

The battle for the market dominance of the operating system is already far off.It started in the browser war.

It is good to remember that Explorer has already dominated almost 90% of the market.The reason for this absolute leadership was not only in browser quality but especially in Microsoft’s strategy to embed it in the Windows package.

The Mozilla Foundation, a developer of Firefox, did what few people believed:it touched Microsoft Explorer as one of the most commonly used browsers.

Then came Google’s Chrome and soon got a lot of new users.A fast and very simple to use browser.

In 2011 Chrome reached a new standard among browsers when launching its Web Store, with hundreds of great free applications.All this without the need to restart as with Firefox.

Focus on Smartphones

The Mozilla Foundation knows that the smartphone and tablet application market is a goldmine.And that no operating system or browser will survive without investing in this segment.

So, Mozilla decided that it could not wait any longer.
