Ghandi once said that there is more to life than increasing its speed. In the same vein there is more to making a browser amazing than making it perform fast. In this talk you’ll learn what Firefox has in store for users and developers alike and get a glimpse into how a browser can blur the line between apps and the web whilst allowing you to experience the web on your own terms.
