Except that they decided the browser is going to run resolutely in 32-bit over 64-bit and there's no longer the option for 64-bit versions in the nightly builds either. I just don't understand why they're not trying to grow with more advanced platforms.
Firefox OS is also looking to sort of become the newer Linux of mobile OS's Consumers by allowing more opennes from the "walled gardens" of what current exists with iOS, Android and WP7. I guess their goal for openness coincides with "the web being the primary platform." Their website says it allows more choices and won't lock anyone into a single OS but I don't understand whether Firefox OS is going to be an overlay for Android or a stand alone OS entirely.
However the privacy offered by "Do not track" technology is pretty outstanding. I had never heard of that before googling it after reading in this article but it makes Firefox a MUCH more appealing web browser.
I'd like to see some more in depth information, and some side by side comparison of both the old Firefox, and the browsers of today before I make the leap back to Firefox. It's just seemed like in the past 2-3 years, Firefox became slower and buggier. I think they've lost a good amount of loyal followers recently, and it's starting to show in their declining market dominance.
It might also be that there are entire newcomers to the game with Browsers like Chrome, and IE revamping its game. I think this article is talking about how this past year they've made a resurgence from the bugginess and "lack of mojo" during the past 2-3 years before this one.I have IE, Chrome and Firefox all on my laptop because .gov, .mil, and .edu networks can only be accessed through IE, and a specific software that's part of the course for some of my classes only works on Firefox and Chrome is my personal favorite for everything else, but in using Firefox this year even if it is for a single use it seems to be quicker than it has been when I had it on my desktop at home the past couple of years
Mozilla 2012 Look Amazing!
I'd be willing to give Mozilla a try.
