In a couple of weeks, Android users will have a new contextually aware homescreen app. The Firefox Launcher adapts to your search queries by delivering relevant apps and homescreen background.

As shown in the video below, the Home app (which is what the Firefox Launcher is based from) lets users discover content and customizes their experience with a search-focused approach. So when you search for James Bond, for instance, the launcher swaps the apps currently in display with another set that’s relevant to secret agent 007. Apps being shown will also change depending on the time of day and the user’s location.

With this announcement, it looks like Mozilla isn’t satisfied with releasing its own mobile OS; it wants its presence in other platforms, too. But for now, the Firefox Launcher is still in development and getting polished for a beta release. The question is: will it become your main Android launcher once it’s available?
