Firefox OS for Raspberry Pi

Oleg Romashin has got a long way already with a port of the open-platform OS to the Raspberry Pi. Firefox OS is scheduled to release some time in 2013; we’re excited to see it’ll be an option for the Raspberry Pi, and it’s fascinating watching work like this progress. In the video below you’ll see Gecko runtime doing its thing, along with some WebGL animations at 60fps.

Oleg’s a Principal Engineer at Nokia. He’s made a download of the work-in-progress port to Raspberry Pi available (this is a direct download link to the tarball; there isn’t currently any other content on his site) if you want to join in the fun.
