Will Firefox OS finally catch fire?
Mozilla’s Firefox OS is designed as an open source smartphone firmware and UI built around the HTML 5 Web standards. The software load is minimal, apps are responsive. But the initial group of phones running it have been underwhelming, as have been their sales. At MWC 2014, ZTE will introduce a new Firefox phone, the ZTE Open C, running Firefox OS 1.3 (current release is 1.2). Will other phone makers follow suit, and will Mozilla add features that make the OS more compelling for developers? Last October, the OS got a performance boost and wider distribution.
