  7. 7. HTML5 Bah, standards! Who needs them? Some flashy ones said, until a phone that was smart, kicked them out of its bed.
  8. 8. HTML5 Things that are fun, should be shiny & cool, thats why the new standards bring many a new tool.
  9. 9. HTML5 (WebGL) 3D graphics are thrilling, as gamers will tell, we now have that on the web & it is called WebGL.
  10. 10. Build a Web that Will Last Be FUTURE FRIENDLY & look forward, & STOP building for the past.
  11. 11. Move the Web Forward …• The web is on phones, tablets, computers, TV’s.• We have to MOVE IT FORWARD … ... Or else our existence will cease.

  13. 13. What is Firefox Mobile OS?• Boot to Gecko (B2G) + Gaia + Gonk = Firefox Mobile OS • B2G  HTML5 + CSS + JavaScript | Application Runtime • Gaia  HTML5 + CSS + JavaScript | User Interface • Gonk  Linux Kernel + HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer)• A complete, standalone operating system for the open web. • Mozilla’s open source web-based operating system for mobile devices.
  14. 14. What is Firefox Mobile OS?• The framework for the Open Web Device platform was introduced at the Mobile World Congress last Feb 2012 (in Barcelona, Spain).
  15. 15. What Hardware isSupported?• As of now, B2G has been tested on Samsung Galaxy S II & the Samsung Nexus S. • Why only these devices? • Because these devices are commercially available to Mozilla employees & community members.• Mozilla announced that ZTE & Alcatel will be the lead OEM partners for the commercial shipping of B2G devices.• B2G, as of now, works (tested) on Qualcomm chipset-based hardware.
  16. 16. Why B2G?• Using HTML5, developers everywhere write directly to the web• The source code is open and accessible & the project is based entirely on open standards• Enabling HTML5 devices running on the Open Web which can deliver smartphone capabilities at feature phone prices.• 70% of the apps found in the Google Play store are written in HTML5.
  17. 17. Why B2G?• According to Telefónica: “Boot to Gecko phones will be 10 times cheaper than an iPhone.”• Boot to Gecko architecture eliminates the need for apps to be built on platform-specific native API’s.
  18. 18. Boot to Gecko UI• B2G is the low-level workings of the phone• On top of that, you will be able to have any interface layer you want • Telefónica developed one already • Mozilla has Gaia
  19. 19. What is Gaia?• Mozilla’s user interface for Boot to Gecko which is an extension of that• What makes Gaia extra interesting is that it is all developed in HTML5, CSS, & JavaScript• Gaia is developed completely in the open
