> That's old news, Mozilla evangelist recommended me to update Firefox 1.3 introduces WebGL support, I decided to update my keon (Firefox OS Developer device) and I tried to run my medium game that couldn't run my iPod touch 4, then on Fireox OS, it runs like... wow awesome, it blew my mind how it runs with smooth fps.
You mean the Geeksphone Keon with its Snapdragon S1 and 512mb of ram? Wow, if it runs your game awesome then Firefox OS must be pretty damn good/efficient. That's ultra low-end specs on Android.
Don't compare Firefox OS to Android. FxOS is a very fast light-weight system. I've been using two FxOS phones every day (ZTE Open and Geeksphone Peak) and they are faster than half of the half-dozen Androids I've had, the two iPhones, and the dozen Windows/WinCE phones.
The difference is that FxOS cuts out all that middle part of an OS. There's just a tiny kernel at the bottom, a very fast and efficient version of the Firefox browser on top, only a small bit of glue in between. HTML5 is very lightweight and if you use smart techniques, you'd be amazed. It is important to make it clear that FxOS is not the Firefox browser. Things have been cut out and slimmed down and made fast. Everything for Firefox OS is still in a developer mode, so I won't say go out and buy one (and you can't just go to the mall), but I'm having fun and I'm really thrilled because Construct 2 has made it easier for Firefox OS game making if you don't want to code. I'm a hard-core coder myself, but I think it would help Mozilla's mission if more people were using Construct 2 to make cool games for the Marketplace.
What is cool right now is that Construct 2 is equally fast and efficient (I'm in awe at some of the stuff Ashley does) and it works well with Firefox OS. I'll be testing and posting, but if you want a sense of what kinds of games it runs, check out my blog. I've done 95 posts in the last six months, and about half of them are game reviews of games from the Firefox OS Marketplace.
Even my ZTE Open ($79 new no contract) works for games and playing music and phone calls. The Geeksphone Peak is better because it has more memory, but both are useable. I had to upgrade both to 1.2 but they ARE developer phones.
What is exciting is that Mozilla is working on a $25 phone. Their mission is to bring the web to the world, not just the United States. I'm continuously fascinated by the people who are contributing to FxOS from all over the world, literally!
