Revision Content

Boot to Gecko (B2G) is a new, proposed open source operating system intended to realize the goal of building a complete, standalone operating system for the open web.  It leverages HTML5, new Web APIs (including those for direct hardware access), a privilege model (to ensure safe exposure of hardware to pages and applications), a new boot mechanism, and new web applications to prioritize and prove the power of the system.  As a driver of standards, these new web applications aren't just intended to run on B2G, but on the web generally.
