If you’re excited about Firefox OS and can’t wait to get your hands on it, we’ve got some good news today. One of the developers for the operating system announced yesterday that test builds for the desktop version of Firefox OS are now available. So if you’ve got a computer and you want to test out the functions of the operating system, you can. Web developers can use these desktop builds to test their web apps to see compatibility, while those of you who just want to play around with the operating system can do so as well.
Being its first release, there are bound to be problems and bugs, so don’t be surprised if things don’t work as expected. The Desktop builds are available for users on Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. Just head here to download the files, and here for instructions on how to set them up. Do let us know what you think about Firefox OS if you give it a shot.
