Firefox OS 1.3 brings new tools for better mobile Web gaming

Games are a top app category for smartphones, and Mozilla is trying to make them better with a new release of its browser-based operating system, Firefox OS.

The nonprofit organization on Thursday said it’s released Firefox OS 1.3 to smartphone partners such as ZTE, Alcatel, Huawei, and LG Electronics. To improve games, the new version of the OS includes asm.js and WebGL, two programming foundations particularly useful to game developers.
