    hi
    You might have used firefox in desktop or laptops. Its the same but in android platform.

    - it has a re designed interface and supports adobe flash
    -much cleaner design and provides large thumbnails in startup
    -Firefox offers a Sync function, so users of Firefox on the desktop can easily access their open tabs, bookmarks, saved passwords
    -there is an add-ons feature that lets users enhance the functionality of the mobile browser with extensions.

    I guess you are talking about Firefox OS.

    The Firefox OS code named Boot to Gecko project is an open source operating system made to enable the Open Web as a platform for mobile devices.

    The project promises to eliminate the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms. The OS is made using HTML5 and the new Mozilla-proposed standard APIs. It mainly targets Android-compatible smartphones.

    The initial OS is designed using a Linux kernel, a hardware abstraction layer called Gonk, Gecko Web browser to render HTML and CSS and run JavaScript, platform-independent JavaScript APIs to run apps like dialer, Bluetooth, camera and USB and platform independent HTML5 apps.


    Gaia -- The interface of Firefox OS ie Boot to gecko is called gaia. Gaia implements a different apps like home screen, lock screen, telephone dialer, messaging application, camera , etc.

    The Mozilla firefox is just like the other browsers that are present in the android market there are features such as
    1. Tabbed browsing
    2. Sync with desktop browser
    3. Instant Google access
    4. Add ons
    5. Browsing your favorite sites with just few taps.
    Also the Mozilla has a beta version of the browser you can download them and try it, to figure out the changes that are to be made in further updates there by helping the Mozilla Community.
