Mozilla Ready to Reveal App Store
Mozilla Marketplace will open its doors to developers at the Mobile World Congress
Mozilla Marketplace will open its doors to developers at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona next week according to a statement made by the company. The news was announced along with details regarding the Mozilla Web Apps platform, which is supposed to level the playing field for building apps. At the event is expected also to be unveiled the upcoming mobile operating system of Mozilla, called Boot to Gecko.
Although Mozilla hasn't explicitly said so yet, it's expected that the Marketplace will also provide neutral territory for its upcoming mobile operating system, currently called Boot to Gecko, to sell and distribute apps. Apps written for the Mozilla Marketplace will only have to be bought once, after which Mozilla says they'll be usable on any HTML5-enabled device. Boot to Gecko is scheduled to get its first major public airing at the Barcelona conference, too.
