Here in the Hacks blog we’ve written a lot about building apps for Firefox OS using HTML, JS, and CSS. We’re working to ensure that those same apps can also run on Android, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux devices.

For over a decade, CAPTCHAs have used visual puzzles to help webmasters keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on their sites. However, over the last few years advances in artificial intelligence have reduced the gap between human and machine capabilities in deciphering distorted text. Today, a successful CAPTCHA solution needs to go beyond just relying on text distortions to separate man from machine.

Online and cloud-based content creation scenarios, such as e-mail and Web-based document editing—including Office 365, rely on the contentEditable feature of HTML5.

You’ve put your hard work into building a great app. If you want to get paid for your app then the Firefox Marketplace supports app receipts and verification of those receipts.
Receipt verification is how we ensure that your app has been paid for in the case of both hosted and packaged apps.
