Firefox OS Marketplace leaks out, one step closer to launch next year

Firefox OS Marketplace leaks out, one step closer to launch next year
The Firefox operating system for mobile devices might seem like a tough sell against Androids, iPhones and Windows Phone devices, but it comes with the promise of HTML5 knitted deep into the core of the system and now we have more images of the Firefox Marketplace, all indications that Mozilla is working hard on delivering the platform to market.

These leaked images below show that the Marketplace in Firefox OS has evolved a lot from a top-level structure in Boot to Gecko (or B2G, the former name used to refer to the Firefox mobile OS). Now, there are plenty of free applications but the focus is on categories, not highlighting individual applications.

You can all improtant Marketplace elements are already there including the option to submit reviews, some art for the releases and a review system, but overall the Firefox app catalog looks a bit spartan. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, so check out the screen grabs below and let us know about your impressions in the comments below.

Even though a hardcore Firefox fan... i dont like that much the idea of an HTML5-OS. Yet i have to try it my self to decide. I remember the days when Android 1.5 came up and it wasnt much of an experience compared with iOS, than things changed. I believe a OS that includes most of medium-user needs of apps, on a beautiful device could be a good win. Would like to remember Nokia N9. So... lets see firefox...!

yeah i know right!! i really like firefox.. it didnt give me so much head ache than i have with google chrome... i ended up uninstalling chrome and install a new brower, Mozilla SeaMonkey, so fast like FireFox...

i also think HTML5 OS wont be good but it will be the future... but i just hope not as an OS but as a standard for apps... the OS is really not that a great idea.. but who knows? maybe it will be.. like android, it was suppose to be like a BlackBerry OS from the early prototype but due to the popularity of iPhone, it is now greater than iPhone!

wow.. looking good... its really a kid of android and iOS and with a twist of being the future... but i still think HTM5 web base OS is still not a great idea... but it might be great...might do awesome job....

what i like to HTML5 apps is that it will run on browser and as a native app... and it will run of other HTML5 base OS like the upcoming TIZEN (if samsung is still interested to invest on its own OS)
