Ouya Might Be Getting Firefox

It's probably fitting that Firefox, the open-source browser, is being tested on Ouya, the open source games console. Although Ouya (when it launches in March to Kickstarter backers) will run Android Jelly Bean and thus the perfectly good Chrome browser, full-on Firefox compatibility would be a boon.
