B2G - Firefox OS

This project gained big attention and in my opinion is really interesting, both technically and commercially.

Thin client was always dream of the future, recently Google tried it with ChromeOS but it wan't successfull. In my opinion this was because of price, and Desktop look&feel. Maybe with tablet with ChromeOS it would be more popular.

Mozilla with new project wants to create cheap and application friendly OS for mobile phones. Core applications like support for SMS, or talks would be cached for offline use. I menioned offline because most of applications will work just as HMTL5 Web Applications!

This rally can be first operating system that will be like mobile browser in the pocket ;)

Call for an ACTION to stop implementation of -webkit- vendor prefix in other browsers!

In my humble opinion vendor prefixes was bad idea from the start, but worst idea was to let browsers put them in *stable* versions of browsers.

This is good for innovation, I can agree but this is bad for standarization, and now we see how.
