Many may have read the news that you can already try Firefox OS on the computer, all thanks to r2d2b2g (Ready to Deliver to Boot to Gecko), an extension that weighs around 60 MB and what can we get here.
Once we install the Extension, we are going to Tools »B2G Desktop, being able to use the ESC keys to go back or fn + right / fn + left (in the case of laptops) to go back to Home.
I don't have much to say about the interface. The way elements are scrolled and displayed is very similar to what other OS offer like Android, iOSEtc. ..
If I must admit that I really liked the finish of the icons, with its rounded appearance it is a bit different from what we are already used to seeing. I love how the message inbox looks and needless to say the browser.
Here are some screenshots of how it looks Firefox OS on Mi PC.
Performance and printing
Like version of Android that can be tested on the PC, Firefox OS it runs a little slow on some things, and sometimes the behavior is not what you expect. Sure, it is normal, first because it is not working in its natural habitat, and second, because r2d2b2g it is not yet a stable enough product.
Of course, being on a PC, we will not be able to see the options and functionalities that Firefox OS on a phone, but on the official website you can see some very interesting captures.
What really calls me from Firefox OS it is the technology that it uses for its operation. Unfortunately I have no knowledge yet of how to make any modification using HTML + JS, something that for me will be the main advantage of this system.
That yes, I predict an excellent future for Firefox OS And if, as they say, it can range from low-end terminals to the highest ranges, I'm sure it will be an excellent alternative to iOS, Android, BlackBerry OS y Windows Mobile.
