In a report published by TechRadar, Product and Innovation Director at Telefonica, Carlos Domingo, says that survey results show that Firefox Mobile OS is going to do good when it comes to apps for their operating system.
According to Domingo, “results from our survey showed that over 75% of all apps in Google Play and the Apple AppStore are written in HTML 5, which makes them really easy to port over to Firefox.”
This could be good for Mozilla and app developers because the latter will have an easier time in making their apps compatible with Firefox Mobile OS.
Firefox Mobile OS is a web-based HTML 5 platform. App developers who have browser-based apps will be happy upon knowing that their system will work with the HTML 5 platform easily.
Facebook will also be unveiling their HTML 5 app along with Twitter. The two are considered to be two of the most popular apps in the market today. With the impending release of the HTML 5 versions, this will be integrated deeply into the upcoming Firefox Mobile OS.
Firefox Mobile OS will be entering a market that is being dominated by iOS and Android. They would also have to face the aggressive Windows platform and the impending release of the BlackBerry 10 OS.
