In particular, the market launch of Firefox OS and significant upgrades to our Firefox for Android browser have advanced our goal of opening the mobile ecosystem for users and developers worldwide.

What makes you think you can break into the smartphone market with two clearly dominant players?

There is very high demand in emerging markets for smartphone technology at a reasonable price without long-term contractual carrier subsidies. By using Web technology, Firefox OS and its apps are one layer closer to the hardware, so less memory and CPU is needed to get high performance. The result is a full Web experience that’s attainable for many feature phone users, enabling people to purchase their first smartphone.

Firefox OS – launched in 10 markets and growing – taps into the largest digital ecosystem there is: the Web. We believe the Web is the best platform for innovation, connecting, sharing and for building the world that we want.

Mozilla is not a lobbying operation. Notwithstanding, we take firm stands when the welfare of the Web and its users are at stake.

As with most issues of importance, we believe education, listening and dialogue amongst stakeholders are critical to finding solutions. Mozilla has testified before government bodies and provided input to numerous agencies and NGOs on strengthening the Internet. Our acclaimed Firefox Add-on, Lightbeam, seeks to educate users on matters of privacy in their online lives.

Mozilla’s efforts have resulted in being named the Most Trusted Internet Company for Privacy in 2012, according to a study performed by the Ponemon Institute.
