Firefox OS is a cutting-edge mobile operating system, designed to render the highest performance. The Web is the Platform, which means not only taking down barriers, but also a lighter system that makes your apps run smoothly and an optimal battery life.
Based on open standards, being open source software, and with the commitment of Mozilla Foundation towards a Free Web, Firefox OS has openness written on its DNA. No barriers means you have now full control on your apps and how you distribute them.
Firefox OS implements the latest web standards, and makes them the core of its inner workings. The concepts of true "multi-platform" becomes a reality, and the developer can take his applications to their full potential.
