In the dominant market of Android and iOS, we can barely think of any other operating system running in our smartphones. But we can’t deny the fact that there are still other OS out there. One of the promising OS that could possibly make it’s own rightful place in the smartphone market is the Firefox OS.

Firefox OS is built upon open web standards like HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript and offers a very user-friendly user interface. Firefox OS is pretty different from other mobile OS, you can think of it as, something more than a browser running on a very lightweight Linux-based operating system. So the OS is basically very light and fluid. Overall it is a pleasant OS to look at and here’s how you can get it on your android device without having to flash any ROM or buying a Firefox OS itself.


1. Download the B2GDroid App.

2. Install the app in a normal way, make sure to select the unknown sources under the security settings.

3.It is a launcher so you have to set it as your default launcher and You’re set! 

The customizations run pretty deep with this app/launcher as you will have an almost full Firefox OS experience, including: Launcher, Notification Drawer, Lock Screen and Settings. It doesn’t completely replace your ROM, but if you were considering buying a phone with Firefox OS or making the switch, this is a good way to find out what to expect.
