Homescreen Open Search

It’s a option to search within the devide, including videos, messages, apps, songs, contects, … all from the homescreen. And if there is no results, then it will search on Internet.

Launchers

At the moment, if you want to customize your homescreen, the options you have are very limited, The future is the concept behind Go Launch, on Android.

Chromecast support

A few months ago, Google starts Chromecast, a small devide similar to an USB in insert on your TV, that let you watch your multimedia content in other computer or smartphone.

RTL support

Languages that are read from right to left, as arabic, are now a mess on Firefox OS, so this is a weak point to improve!

Keyboards

On Android we can choose from a variety of keyboards like Swype, Hacker’s Keyboard, SwiftKey, … allowing the user new forms to introduce text on your devide. So, this alternatives are needed for fighting against Android.

To end with …

FirefoxOS is growing, improving, … and that’s good for users, but also for developers. I think this project is a reality, and everyday I like more and more! And you, do you like it?
