For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone.
Also, there are rumors that Tizen and Firefox OS will unify, in order to have more chances to become important Android and iOS competitors.
