As a way to kick off the new service, Mozilla Labs is now inviting developers to participate in their Game On 2010 international contest that will reward developers for the games that they build for the new project. The details of the contest have not been announced though.
The new announcement is exciting coming on the heels of news from several companies including Google, Facebook and Apple about new social gaming applications for their respective platforms. Mozilla Labs’ initiative could extend this trend to the web browser. Gaming is definitely one area that tech companies are betting their future growth on and it will be interesting to see what Mozilla brings to the table.
