With Apple (iOS) and Google (Android) so thoroughly dominating the mobile OS market, it certainly seems unlikely that they will be unseated from their lofty perches any time soon. However, a new competitor has recently emerged in the mobile platform game, Mozilla’s Firefox OS, and it brings with it a number of compelling features which suggest it just might emerge as a viable rival. Announced last year as Boot to Gecko, the project is designed to generate an unprecedented level of compatibility between smartphones and the internet. Should the venture prove successful, it could potentially usher in a line of highly intuitive, simple, cheaply-priced smartphones, an appealing prospect indeed, and considering the fact that the platform has found support with a number of large telecoms like Spring and Telefónica, it seems likely that some level of success is imminent. The ultimate pursuit of Mozilla’s efforts is inclusion, both of the strapped for cash and the technologically shaky, as well as the disgruntled app developer.
