Makers of the renowned Firefox browser and the Thunderbird email clientMozilla, are always looking to bring in new features and improvements for their products. Mozilla Corp has now decided to launch a mobile operating system of its own, which will compete with the likes of iOSAndroid, and WP7. The best part about this mobile OS is that it will be completely open source, and will be used for the development of HTML5 applications. The company wants to encourage developers to write codes on this platform for applications which will work almost like native apps. It seems like a valiant effort by Mozilla to bring something new to the table.

Google introduced Chrome OS for a similar purpose, but Mozilla could improve upon it. For those of you who are wondering what this upcoming OS is going to be called; for now it’s known as Boot To Gecko or B2G.

Google’s open source Chrome OS, which was launched to build desktop apps with the help of web apps. However, Mozilla wants to improve upon the idea by developing a mobile OS which would guide to build web apps based on HTML5. The company reminds us that the idea is pretty fresh, and that it will keep us updated on any new developments on the platform. It will be interesting to see what Mozilla will ultimately come up with.
