Mozilla Invests in Everything.Me

mobile apps, HTML5Everything.me raised $25 million in series C funding with participation from the non-profit software company Mozilla, the companies announced today.

As a non-profit, Mozilla doesn’t typically invest in startups.

The Israeli company’s app, available for iPhone and HTML5 and forthcoming on Android, displays different apps on the user’s mobile screen at different times, in an effort to provide content and services the user needs at that particular moment. The apps live in the cloud and don’t require download.

“Everything.me was started to harness the power of HTML5 and the openness of the web to disrupt the mobile industry,” said Rami Kasterstein, the CEO and co-founder.

Mozilla supports the open web and had been collaborating with Everything.me on a project to empower the Web as a platform for “compelling app experiences.”

Everything.me “is aligned closely with Mozilla’s mission and goals, and we’ve enjoyed collaborating with them to push the boundaries of what the Web can do,” Mozilla’s blog post said.

The company also reiterated that it plans to launch a Firefox open mobile OS in 2013. Everything.me will likely have an app for that.
