With Firefox OS, Mozilla gets a little dirty to clean the mobile web 

I just read this great report by Chris Ziegler about Mozilla’s Firefox OS. I saw an early version last year at MWC and it has hung out in the back of my brain ever since. I’m curious to see what happens with it.

“It’s a means to an end — a good end, not an evil one. “We are fundamentally in the same place we were over a decade ago where [the web is] being unnaturally controlled by a few parties,” Kovacs said. “The same call that we heard over a decade ago is being asked again of us now, which is to free the web.” Mozilla wants to break the Apple-Google ecosystem duopoly by enlisting strange bedfellows — network operators — to support a low-cost phone that can run any app, published by anyone, anywhere, without restrictions. It just needs to get a little dirty to do it.”
