Fixes for WebRTC on Android will make it into Fx 25, 26 and 27 [project page has been set up to track those bugs for visibility]
SUMO: Tyler looked after release on developer sites: nothing. Roland looked last Tuesday:nothing. Roland will create a wiki page and put a link here, and will find an evangelism contact for WebRTC and see if they know anything.
Evaluating what resonates with partners to sweeten preinstall opportunities
Firefox to play to our strengths: choice, customization, flexibility, HTML5, performance, extensible platform
Firefox will be measured by ADIs, Google star ratings, download growth, conversion rates, press coverage, market share - anything that visibly shows we're a viable and relevant mobile browser
Two paths for distribution: download & preinstall
Short term roadmap & workload mix in all areas that resonate with partners
Some items are targeted for release in Q4 / Q1
Other items are work that we need to do in Q4 / Q1 to support a Q2 / Q3 release
So you'll hear about a plan covering 6 - 12 months, although the main focus is work that needs to be accomplished in Q4 / Q1
Main priority items (which can compromise of multiple components) include:
Finishing up search provider work
Adding elements of our share provider work
Facilitating and improving the WebRTC experience
Exploring and prototyping second screen support (including WebRTC use cases) which can include IPTV and STB implementations
Reading list improvements
Finishing up the Webapp APK synthesis work
Always performance improvements to facilitate the mobile gaming story and ensure we don't fall behind the competition in start-up and page load times (also needed for a strong Webapp story)
Sync (tablestakes so we don't lose users to Chrome sync)
Improved tablet experience (UX wins and m-commerce)
Elements of our 'flavours' work
GeckoView productization plan
Other items that are important but will likely not be able to be accomplished in the short term timeframe but on the books for medium term:
Fixing master password
Data bandwidth optimization
Supporting ever-expanding set of locales
EOL official Android 2.2 support
Further gestures support
Expanding on cloud services integration
Firefox for the enterprise
Lists and priorities will be re-evaluated constantly
Prioritization of work
Add-ons to customize sound effects -> remove if we can land some reader list and share provider work
Directional game console nav - finish up the work here?
STB browser optimization - finish up the work here?
Additional locales: Hindi, Slovenian
WebRTC improvements (decrease audio latency)
Other (new items) proposed:
Landing initial share provider work?
Any Reading List improvements?
Change the default search provider for NEW users where Bing has been added (from Fx 26)
Oct 22 is our target
Review the Fx 27 features async in nightly a few days prior and we can come back to the group with comments?
Karen on PTO post Summit thru Wednesday, Oct 16 (inclusive)
