Screen Shots: Mozilla's Firefox Mobile OS
Mozilla's Firefox operating system is expected to arrive on smartphones by 2013
Tuesday, September 11, 2012: Mozilla recently showcased its open source Firefox operating system on its YouTube Channel. We earlier reported about Mozilla announcing its operating system for smartphones, named Firefox OS. Those who are looking forward to the new browser can now download the nightly builds from Mozilla's website. However, this build cannot be downloaded on your phone yet, but can be tried on your computer. It is not as easy as installing an app, but is relatively easy to handle.
This new operating system was announced with the codename Boot2Gecko. It has been enhanced a lot since and the new browser is expected to arrive on smartphones by 2013. The OS builds on Mozilla's website offers an x86 compatible Boot2Gecko runtime for testing the Gaia shell and applications, which are built for the platform. This is specifically useful for Gaia contributors and developers who are all geared to develop apps for the devices coming next year.
