It seems that soon (hopefully end of 2012) we might have a "powered by Mozilla" logo on our smartphones, as our favorite open source organization is developing its own mobile operating system called "Boot to Gecko" (B2G). As its name implies, it is powered by the same engine that powers all Mozilla products, called Gecko.
After a lot of speculation, Mozilla has announced that it had struck a 3 year deal with Google for the default position in the search bar. Rumour has it that the spot was also sought after by Yahoo and more importantly by Microsoft for its Bing search engine. Interestingly enough, a couple of month ago, Mozilla and Microsoft announced a Firefox with Bing edition, which a lot of people thought would pave the way to a multi-year deal similar to the one Firefox had with Google at the time.
