Firefox OS, Mozilla’s smartphone operating system, is getting a new app for launching apps.

“The app integrates the contextual adaptive app search from EverythingMe with the Firefox for Android Web browser to offer users a personalized and customizable Web experience that is fun and intuitive,” Mozilla said Wednesday in a blog post. The non-profit organization showed a preview of new app launcher Tuesday.

Firefox OS already used EverythingMe’s software for presenting a dynamically generated array of links to Web apps.

“We are happy to expand our work together with this new product to give people more smart, easy, and innovative ways to personalize their Web experience and meet their needs in any context,” Mozilla said.
