In a post on the Mozilla Labs blog discussing the announcement, Mozilla Labs Director Pascal Finette says that the availability of modern open web technologies "make it possible to build complex (and not so complex) games on the Web," adding that, "With these technologies being delivered through modern browsers today, the time is ripe for pushing the platform."
To kick off the new project, Mozilla's research and development section said that it will launch its first international gaming competition. The Game On 2010 competition will open at the end of September and be open to all developers interested in creating games for the web.
