    Default Firefox OS

    Firefox OS is a 100% HTML5, CSS and JavaScript operating system. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...lla/Firefox_OS. The philosophy is 'the web is the platform'. The device boots directly to a Firefox browser view. In Firefox OS, all apps are HTML5 web apps, even the camera app, phone dialing app. All device functions like camera, contacts etc. are directly accessible from JavaScript without the need for wrapping a web app with e.g. PhoneGap.

    That sounds like a perfect OS for Sencha Touch. So I hope Sencha will at least have a look whether support for this platform is viable!

    If you check the release notes of ST 2.2, you will see there is already some experimental Firefox OS work being done.
