Firefox.html – Re-Implement the Firefox UI in HTML
Firefox.html is an experiment, a proof of concept: trying to re-implement the Firefox UI in HTML, as an app. It is based on the Browser API and works the same way Gaia’s browser and system apps work. Even though it includes tags like vbox, hbox, spacer, etc… it’s all HTML.
Current priority is to re-implement the basic features of Firefox Desktop to make Firefox.html a usable browser, and understand what’s missing at the platform level for a perfect integration to the OS. Firefox.html requires a runtime: a special build of Gecko we call “htmlrunner”. The runtime code is based on Firefox.
