People keeping track of these things will remember that back in September the Mozilla Foundation announced the launch of a new initiative called Mozilla Labs Gaming, an initiative that focuses on games developed, delivered and played on the Open Web and the browser. As Mozilla explained at the time, the initiative’s focus is on Open Web Technologies such as Open Video, audio, WebGL, touch events, device orientation, geo location, and any other free, open-source tool that works across platforms and modern web browsers.
