Good way for Moz to encourage open source contributions.

Remote debbuging for mobile web, long awaited, here soon!
(I hope the protocol is standard)
Here's a great news for Mobile Web Developers! The Chromium Team has started to work on Remote Debugging over raw USB.

It means we will be able to use the DevTools to inspect and debug web pages on our mobile devices without having to install ADB anymore.

You can actually try it right now:
- download the last chromium build at download-chromium.appspot.com
- enable chrome://flags/#remote-debugging-raw-usb flag,
- restart and go to chrome://inspect,
- plug your android device through USB,
- enable USB debugging in Chrome for Android settings,
- enjoy!

It only works for Linux and Chrome OS for now.

Hum, I guess once more the interests of the user are getting threatened by hardware/infrastructure companies.

The neutrality of the network is still a big fight we need to win. While I'm glad organizations like mozilla are active on the side of the software, we must take care of the hardware, our clients as well as our network infrastructure.

Set top boxes and non-hackable devices, we are looking at you.
What if any two devices, with just a few lines of JavaScript, could make a free voice call, or a free video call, anywhere, and not necessarily be subjected to control by phone carriers or other entrenched interests?

WebRTC, IMHO, is one of the most important technologies added to the web platform in the last couple of years. It is disruptive, perhaps too disruptive. It commoditizes things which used to be hard to do, even replicating something like Skype or Google Hangouts becomes much easier for small startups, and it scares big IHVs and ISVs who sell equipment and charge money for these services. It threatens to turn phone carriers into bit-pipes as well.

Putting on my tin-foil hat, it doesn't seem surprising to me that Microsoft (which owns Skype), Cisco (which owns WebEx), and Nokia (puppet of Microsoft), are pushing back and finding ways to delay it. The brouhaha over the VP8 codec is only one aspect, there are players who are worried their existing deployed VoIP/Video HW endpoints will be obsolete legacy equipment in the new WebRTC world, and so they do not want mandatory features which put them at a disadvantage.

But this technology is too important to be designed in a way that makes it hard to use, hitched to commercial legacy hardware, or encumbered by commercially controlled cartels like MPEG-LA. 

When Apple shipped the iPhone, they could have hitched themselves to legacy. But they broke with legacy, didn't support MMS, didn't support Flash, and ultimately, they were better for it. 

All IMHO of course.

A lot of great promises with Firefox OS: Now the web is the platform, and it's going to rock!

I saw a bunch of interresting and funny demos during these Firefox OS App Days, and, icing on the cake, I won a phone with my TV Guide demo (I hope I'll have a way to show it to the world soon!)
