A few days ago, SeaMonkey, Firefox, and Firefox Mobile company, Mozilla, announced that they are working on an Android-based operating system for mobile devices. The software would utilize Android for beneath-the-surface operations like managing hardware, but would feature a completely new UI.
The “Frakenstein” OS is called Boot to Gecko–or B2G–and will forgo Java entirely. Mozilla will release the source code as it is integrated. Android apps will be ported, but originals will be designed to run from the web. Perhaps Fennec will be the UI for B2G.
Will Mozilla do with Firefox what Google has done with the Chrome OS, only for smaller form factors? If so, would you be interested in such a device?
