Firefox OS's Everything Searcher feature completely erases the lines between what is local to your device and what is on the web. When you want to find apps or documents, you can just type starting with a single word and the results will start to appear!

To create a consistent search experience for users, Firefox OS also provides a search framework for developers, this helps them implement search for their applications.

Here's How:

  1. Tap the home button.
  2. Swipe to the left to open the search screen.
    search firefox os
  3. Search for what you need.
  4. Tap what you see that is interesting to you.
    search firefox os2
To install an application to your phone, tap and hold the application icon and select Add to Homescreen.
