Developers can now build and test apps for Mozilla’s upcoming mobile OS.


Mozilla has made available a daily desktop build of Firefox OS, it’s upcoming HTML5-based mobile operating system for low-end smartphone devices.

The build is to help developers make applications for the platform and test it out. However, users who want to have a peak can do so by downloading it and following the instructions here on how to go about doing so. It supports Windows, Mac and Linux.

“If you’re a web developer, you can use these builds to create and test your webApp against. If you’re looking to help do some testing, these desktop builds will also give you an immediate opportunity to play with and help us write testplans and file bugs,” said Mozilla QA community member Tony Chun in a blog post.

Mozilla announced previously that a number of wireless carriers have signed up to support the OS. Including in the list is UAE telcom Etisalat. Firefox OS will start shipping on devices next year.
