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

Firefox Marketplace hopes to compete with Google Chrome Web Store

Prism, the predecessor to Firefox apps

Firefox apps appear to be based on the premise of Mozilla’s Prism, which is no longer being developed by them. It allowed you to install a web link as an application shortcut on your computer’s OS. Clicking such a shortcut would launch a stripped down version of Firefox (minus its standard GUI), which in turn would go to the URL and load the web-based app (or page) at the address. Chrome has a similar feature built into it.
