Mozilla Abandons Firefox OS, RIPAt first it was Thunderbird and now FFOS…

Mozilla, the company that is ran by the headless chickens, has announced that they will stop developing and selling Firefox OS smartphones.

Unveiled back in 2013, Firefox OS was supposed to flood the developing world with the low cost devices. After that strategy failed, they switched to the “higher end”, and after this strategy failed too, Mozilla completely abandoned the platform and it is now dead.

Hey, at least they have had time and resources to announce a Safari only ad blocker for the iOS.
