Mozilla wants to push the boundaries of all connected devices, and is shifting focus to the living room with its Firefox OS. The open source operating system offers an opportunity to try and break up the rather proprietary and closed world among today's TVs and home entertainment products.

 

Mozilla and Panasonic will team up to bring the Firefox OS into the living room on smart HDTVs, with other announcements in the near future likely.

"By producing an OS powered by Web technologies and the Web's principles of openness and competition at every layer of the stack, we're applying the full power and flexibility of the Web to the mobile ecosystem for the first time," said Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer, in a blog post.

 

The mobile ecosystem is evolving rapidly, and Mozilla hopes Firefox OS users find the cloud-based functionality practical.
