What is the objective of Firefox OS?
You can access the Internet on all computers today but not on all mobile phones. Many smartphones are expensive and complicated.
Our goal is to provide an operating system for the next billion smartphone users - and we think we’ll get there. We’re experiencing incredibly huge traction in the industry, so much so, that the press has called Firefox OS THE most exciting new platform in mobile.
Thanks to Firefox OS, Africa now has an access to this simple, efficient and affordable system, which could change many lives out there. Firefox OS provides a flexible and open mobile platform that empowers everyone to build a better future.
A Firefox OS Community is being created and we are looking for people that believe in the same values as us to help us spread the word, let everyone gain access to the Internet on the go and shape our future.
Firefox OS has always worked with a non-profit, public benefit goal. Our teams are composed of passionate and dynamic volunteers who believe in us and in this mission.
