Gar Kovacs, the Mozilla CEO, pushes device manufacturers and programmers to focus on creating HTML 5 based products instead of isolating the technology to specific mobile applications.
Users do not want to be tied to an application ecosystem, Kovacs said, and will embrace the freedom of choice.
When AOL controlled the world wide web but lost out users when they realized they can navigate the internet without AOL’s software, Kovacs pointed, and that was when the web became open and allowed to progress into a bigger machine.
Firefox is one of the most popular browsers in the world, the company, such as many others allowed Apple to develop the current mobile application infrastructure, while browser company’s are looking for ways to open mobile devices to apps using HTML 5 and other programming standards.
Mozilla’s report has shown that only 10% of the websites are mobile-friendly, while the company is expecting HTML 5 to be available on more than 2 billion mobile devices by 2016 via more secure browsers.
