The web of today would not be the same if Mozilla hadn't fought up against the web monoculture on the Desktop in the 90s. The same challenge of users getting locked in to a certain environment to be able to go online happens now on the mobile market. In this talk I will show the history of Mozilla and what happens right now to free the mobile web from lock-in. The web is out there for everybody and should not be dependent on expensive devices. In this talk you'll hear about Mozilla's efforts to teach people the benefits of the web, learn how to help us by testing Firefox on Android and get introduced to Firefox OS, the first fully open operating system for mobile devices with apps based on web standards.
