In Pictures: Mozilla previews app store in time for the holidays

Firefox Marketplace hopes to compete with Google Chrome Web Store

Firefox Marketplace apps install like normal apps

After you install an app from Firefox Marketplace, a launcher icon for the app is set on the home screen of Android, and in an app page in the browser. Apps from Firefox Marketplace are built on HTML5 and other open web technologies, so a Firefox app icon is essentially a shortcut, which will launch the Firefox browser engine and then go to a URL to load a web-based app.
