Boot 2 Gecko is a project from Mozilla.

Everything (except for the back-end) is built with HTML5.

It would be awesome to see boot2gecko running on the Raspberry Pi. Would this be possible?

It says 'probably'...

"Works on ARMv7, will probably work on ARMv6;"

The I'll say it will probably work on the r-pi :-P :-P

I know it's a useless answer at this point, but soon people will actually start getting the boards and you'll better responses.  Ultimately, someone will just have to give it a shot and try it out ;-)

Initial automated ARM6 builds for Firefox on Android (for development purposes)

With a bit of luck, if Firefox for Android builds on the ARM6 architecture can be automated, Boot 2 Gecko might be next in line.

Today they announced Android: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1700

Really hope to see B2G - seems like a very decent alternative! :)
