We are pleased to partner with Orange to bring the mobile Web to users in a substantial number of new growth markets across Africa and the Middle East," said Mozilla CTO Andreas Gal. Im also thrilled to see how the imminent arrival of Firefox OS has created excitement in the local Mozilla communities.
