Mozilla is working on a Chromecast-like streaming stick

A Firefox-OS-powered streaming stick is in the works and Mozilla aims to provide an alternative to the Google’s Chromecast.

Our colleagues over at Gigaom have their hands on a prototype version and have shared their insights on what we can expect from the stick. The streaming stick doesn’t have a name yet, which should hint that it’s far away from reaching the market.

Interestingly enough, however, the Firefox OS streaming stick is capable of playing some Chromecast content. It is detected by the Android YouTube app as a Chromecast and plays video without breaking a sweat.

Checkout the hands-on video below to see how the device works and what it looks like in greater detail.
