Hello Nicholas,

Firefox OS refers to an open source operating system that is meant to be used on smartphones. This OS was developed by Mozilla with the aim to have support for HTML5 apps that have been written using open web technologies as opposed to the platform specific native APIs.

The concept that has been used in building the Firefox operating system is to come up with an user application that can work well with HTMl5, which makes use of APIs to gain direct access to the hardware of the phone using JavaScript. This OS has been demonstrated on smartphones that are compatible with android.
