    The Firefox Marketplace is an open and non-proprietary online marketplace for web applications. This content zone provides all the information you need to be able to prepare for, and publish apps on, the Firefox Marketplace. It provides guidance on how to make your apps a success, delivery options, monetization, publishing and updating your apps, and the libraries and APIs you need to make use of Marketplace features.

    The Firefox Marketplace enables developers to publish cross-platform open web apps using standard Web technologies, languages, and tools. Mozilla is bringing its core values — openness, freedom, user choice — to the world of apps.

    The Firefox Marketplace is our own dedicated app store for distributing free and paid apps. Submitting an app to the Firefox Marketplace is a simple process, involving uploading the app itself plus surrounding information, and waiting for it to go through our thorough review process to make sure it is high quality and not malicious. Submitting to the Firefox Marketplace also confers other advantages such as increased publicity, no need to implement special APIs on your own web site, and the possibility of publishing paid apps more easily. You can submit both hosted apps and packaged apps to the Firefox Marketplace.
