Mozilla to Concentrate on Four IoT Projects

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

The “Internet of Things” philosophy has been around since about 1999, but over the last several years it seems to be attracting an increasing number of major players in the tech market.

Mozilla revealed yesterday four Internet of Things (IoT) projects that it plans to concentrate on after stopping any further development of Firefox OS for smartphones. Firefox OS for smartphone was an ambitious project for Mozilla, considering that it had to compete in an area where heavyweights such as Google, Apple and Microsoft dominate the field. Even though Mozilla managed to get some telecom partners onboard, it was too little too late, and this resulted in the decision to stop Firefox OS for smartphones and concentrate instead on IoT.
