Mozilla wants app submissions for its open-Web plans

Mozilla’s Marketplace has begun accepting app submissions, looking toward the ultimate goal of building a standalone operating system for the open Web.

As part of the company’s Boot to Gecko project, these apps would allow for cross-device and multi-operating system integration, which means anchoring the apps to the user and not to the device or platform.

“Using HTML, CSS and JavaScript, a developer can build an app using responsive design, and that app can offer the same look and feel as a device-native app, without having to rewrite for every desired target platform,” Joe Stagner, Mozilla’s senior program manager for development technologies and community, writes in a blog post. “One code base–all popular devices!”
