Early peek at the Mozilla Marketplace #html5 #apps

June 18, 2012

It is still very early and we have a LOT of work left to do, but here is a nice sneak peek at our Mozilla Marketplace

Right now there are fewer than 200 apps available and you’ll need to install the latest Firefox 16 Nightly build in order to try the Marketplace. But the apps I’ve tried out have all worked as delivered, and there are a few names you might recognize including Evernote, Springpad, Jolicloud, and Lord of Ultima.

We have a ton more coming… trust me. As we open up the Marketplace, you’ll see a lot more names you recognize (plus some cool stuff waiting to be discovered!) And what’s even cooler, is that you’ll be able to access these apps as well on our spanky new Boot2Gecko phone when it is launched!

When you install a Marketplace app on a Windows computer, for instance, it shows up in your list of installed programs. You can launch the utility or game directly from the Start Menu. And you can use the Windows uninstaller to remove the app from your PC.

Yep, that’s the point! Just because it is on the web, doesn’t mean you have to have a lesser experience or access the web via a browser! The web apps you access from the Mozilla Marketplace have the same performance and feel of a native app.

Mozilla Marketplace goes live, install web apps like native PC apps – Liliputing.
