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

Firefox Marketplace hopes to compete with Google Chrome Web Store

Firefox app start-up time depends on wireless Internet reliability

We found that it could take up to several seconds for a Firefox app to launch and run, which appeared to depend on the reliability of our Android phone’s mobile Internet. If the phone’s 3G happened to be spotty, an app wouldn’t start up as quickly as it would if the signal were stronger. The code of the apps we installed didn’t appear to have been stored in the Aurora browser’s cache, so we couldn’t load and use them when we turned off the phone’s mobile Internet.
