[Video] Sony adds a widgets system for Firefox OS
Sony was one of the first manufacturers to offer support and support for the open source mobile platform Firefox OS since it was announced a year ago.
Already last year the same Vice President of Mozilla has admitted that Sony intends to launch a high-end terminal for the new OS, in addition, to have launched an experimental ROM with Firefox OS for the Xperia E.
Sony continues with the evaluation of Firefox OS and has presented on its official blog a new development alternative called “Gadget”, which is very similar to the usual widgets on Android and other platforms. The video released by the company shows the operation and integration of the same in Gaia, the user interface level operating system of Firefox.
The user can add a gadget to the main screen, which is accessed through a menu with a long press on the home screen and also use it to lock the screen, which provides direct access to the main application. You can interact with the application through the gadget, move it on the screen or change its size.
We already know that Firefox OS is an open source operating system and allows anyone who thinks they have a good idea to submit it for evaluation.
On the part of Mozilla, it is known that they are already evaluating this system created by Sony to add it to their next versions of the Firefox OS operating system.
