Subject description: SmartPhone to IoT connection
 

Well, just like Hello (recently deceased) and Pocket, Mozilla aims to connect us all to an IoT appliance, wether we like it or not. Though *really* intended as a tool for a SmartPhone, Moz has installed it in the default browsers. Exactly what version this began is unclear to me, but anyone with a recent FF edition can check about:config for flyweb in the search bar. If you would rather not connect to your new IoT toaster you can disable all the associated flyweb configs. The responsses include a few clues to other FlyWeb related *ahem* items in the browser.

An excerpt from ghacks reads;

"FlyWeb is linked to Mozilla's big Internet of Things push. The main idea behind the feature is to get phones to interact with electronic devices directly instead of using the cloud for that.
Meet FlyWeb. FlyWeb is a very simple idea at its core. Instead of phones interacting only with the cloud, they can discover and interact with electronics around them that are running empty web clients, such as TV's, projectors, game consoles, etc. The electronics come to life when connected to phones. The key here is that either the phones serve web apps to these electronics, or the electronics serve web apps to the phones."

"The description alone may raise an eyebrow or two. First, Mozilla mentions phones specifically yet FlyWeb is in Firefox Nightly for the desktop."
