Taipei, June 3 (CNA) The Foxconn Technology Group has teamed up with the developer of the Firefox web browser in a bid to create a stronger presence in the operating system (OS) battlefield, executives from both companies said Monday.

Gong Li, president of Mozilla's Asia operations and chief executive officer of Mozilla Taiwan, said at a press conference that the two companies share the same vision of providing a better user experience.

Young Liu, general manager of Foxconn's Innovation Digital System Business Group, echoed Gong's views.
