Mozilla Takes Aim At A Global Duopoly With Firefox OS And The Open Web
"Firefox’s mobile OS is not a traditional operating system like iOS or Android. It’s written entirely in HTML5, the underlying programming language of the Web. Apps run from the Web and hook into the phone’s hardware and data, and can also run offline.

You obviously do not have a Nokia Lumia running Windows 8 or you would not care about these hippie #$%$ OS's that will have endless security holes.
