Continue the development of Mozilla Firefox OS, the new operating system for Smartphones that could represent the fourth incomodo in the eternal challenge between iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The team of the Foundation showed a preview some screenshots of the program, which should debut officially in early next year.
Direct comparison of Firefox OS, of course, is that with Android, iOS is destined to remain always only installed on iPhone and iPad and Windows Phone hasn’t reached that degree of spread enough to be considered a direct rival for supremacy (though with the arrival of Windows 8 all you can). As the developers of Mozilla Foundation stated, the new operating system will have to be absolutely open, fast and light, even more than the toy robot. In this way it would be possible to install the new program also on phones top band, following the basic dictates that Firefox has always obeyed, spreading and ease of use. It is not said, however, that Firefox OS cannot be installed even on higher end devices, but everything will depend on the success that will have the program immediately.
If you take a quick look at the gallery with screenshots, you can see that when the new OS of Fire Fox is a fair mix of various basic functions already present on all other industry software. Obviously you have already invented for media app like Angry Birds and Evernote, which currently don’t exist on the platform of the Foundation. Similarities with iOS, Android and even Windows Phone are several, probably with the aim of convincing developers to quickly focus on the new platform, although most of the graphics will be important the programmability.
The graphics looks pretty nice and similar to what we have already seen in the past. We also see an icon App Market, which we do not know if it will connect at the same store of the browser Firefox or Mozilla decides to create something ad hoc. There is a dock like in iOS, preferring an approach seems more like Android, although in this case we do not see an area dedicated to widgets, but a system closer in ideas to Apple. In short, when there is a great confusion. In the coming months, though, we will discover some extra feature of this potentially revolutionary operating system.
