Are HTML5 Apps the future? A Chat with Mozilla on Firefox OS
Kev Needham from Mozilla was around at MWC to showcase their latest Mobile Operating System- the FireFox OS. Built completely using HTML5 standards, Firefox wants to do away with applications in a traditional sense and use WebApps as applications. We spoke with him to find out more about the Firefox OS and what we can expect out it.
I'm not totally convinced if HTML5 apps is the way to move forward- at least not in this day and time when companies like Facebook have publicly stated that performance for native apps is much better and moved to developing that instead of webapps but it will surely be interesting to see how Firefox OS progresses.
