After following the planned move into the huge smart phone arena, the Mozilla Inc. has teamed up with another tech giant, Panasonic to bring up the Firefox OS to the next-generation smart TVs in the market.

The companies has said that the open platform, which is now based on the HTML5 language and the other web technologies, is going to give the TV viewers more personalized and well optimized access to the web and the broadcasting content and the specialized services through the internet connectivity option.

In addition to the online content, the Panasonic Inc. has also promised to personalize their product’s user interface, which is something the smart phone, the tablet, and Personal Computer users are already accustomed to. The TV interfaces, on the very other hand, are that much typically locked to whatever the device manufacturer ships and that is more often less than the level, when a lot is to be desired.

The tech. giant Panasonic Inc. has also added that this planned move would allow some of the basic functions which are typically and traditionally baked in, such as the menus and the electronic program guides (EPGs), to be well written in the HTML5 language. This also makes it possible for the developers to create in applications that can as well give the users the ability to remotely access and then operate the TV via their smart phones or the tablet devices.
