Mozilla Launches Firefox OS Simulator 4.0 With Test Receipts 41

An anonymous reader writes "As promised, Mozilla today announced the release of Firefox OS Simulator 4.0 with a focus on developers who want to make money in the Firefox Marketplace. You can download the new version now for Windows, Mac, and Linux from Mozilla Add-Ons. First and foremost, the new simulator supports test receipts for paid apps: each app's dashboard features a drop-down menu where you can select a receipt type. Choosing one of these will have the simulator add-on downloading a test receipt from a Marketplace receipt service and reinstalling the app using it. This lets developers test receipt verification with whatever receipts types they may require (valid, invalid, and refunded)."

    Wrong, an OS is a kernel + standard user space libraries + standard executables. Firefox OS is an OS using the Linux kernel much like OS X is an OS using XNU kernel, Windows Phone 8 using the Windows kernel, Windows Phone 7 using the Windows CE kernel, etc.

The goal of science is to build better mousetraps. The goal of nature is to build better mice.
