Mozilla Launched Firefox OS

Mozilla launched mobile operating system, Firefox OS. It is going to be a web based operating system. Initially Mozilla wants to target first time users of any smart phone.

Initially Firefox OS would be seen on smartphones manufactured by Alcatel and ZTE. As of now it is launched in Europe and soon it will be available for the rest of the world.

Mozilla has invested several years in developing Firefox OS. It was a big challenge for Mozilla to step in this field. It would be tough for Mozilla to compete with companies like Google and Apple which are dominating the market with their mobile OS Android and iOS respectively.

Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer, in a press release was quoted saying: “The launch of Firefox OS marks an incredibly exciting time for the Web. Firefox OS powers the first smartphones built entirely on Web technologies and will stimulate an inspiring new wave of innovation for the Web, We are proud to deliver an experience for first time smartphone users that will delight them and really put the power of the Web in people’s hands.”

It would be great for users to have one more company and too Mozilla entering this emerging business of Mobile OS. It is surely going to increase the competition which will benefit the users, as more great apps would be invented and developed.
