#FirefoxOS: The game platform.

October 3, 2012

So a question I get all the time… is HTML5 ready to be a high-end mobile gaming platform?

Well, to be honest, no… not yet. But we are close… oh man are we so ever, ever close.

If you drill down on FirefoxOS, I would honestly put us in the category of only weeks, maybe months on the outside, behind native.  Some games, like Gopherwood’s super addictive Entanglement are already working great on the device, right out of the box without any optimization.

We’ve also been speaking to our good friend Om Nom about his views on FirefoxOS and mobile HTML5 and he seems to like what he sees, so fingers crossed on that one as well.

Overall, the more game developers we speak with; the more we bring their games into the dark, dreary labs of Mozilla R&D; the more we build the browser to be a truly full featured platform to support games, the more I see FirefoxOS being an exciting games platform in the very near future.

And this is great for the world. As our good friends at Uken Games say, gaming is a great way to “deliver happiness.” So why not deliver that happiness on the web, the greatest distribution platform ever created.
