Bootstrap Datepicker for Salesforce1, Google Chrome and Firefox mozilla

Was working on something and got a change for implemtation which should work with Google chrome, Salesforce1 and firefox mozilla as well, with chrome it starts working normally without any modifications, but not in firefox mozilla, I have added comments in the code where I am referring libraries to make datepicker to work in Mozilla.

this is how bootstrap datepicker looks in chrome

This is how it looks in Firefox mozilla

And now in datepicker Salesforce1

Here is the code of the above datepicker

1:  <apex:page showHeader="false" sidebar="false" docType="html-5.0" standardStylesheets="false" applyBodyTag="false" applyHtmlTag="false">  
2:      <html lang="en">  
3:        <head>  
4:          <meta charset="utf-8"></meta>  
5:          <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"></meta>  
6:          <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.5/css/bootstrap.min.css"></link>  
7:          <!-- script for mozilla without these datepicker will work in chrome but not in mozilla-->  
8:          <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/webshim/1.14.5/polyfiller.js"></script>  
9:          <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>  
10:          <script type="text/javascript">  
11:            webshims.setOptions('forms-ext', {types: 'date'});  
12:            webshims.polyfill('forms forms-ext');  
13:          </script>  
14:        </head>  
15:        <body>  
16:          <div class="panel-body">  
17:            <div class="form-group" ng-hide="hideformobile">  
18:              <div class="col-xs-12 form-group input-append datepicker">  
19:                <label>Datepicker</label>  
20:                <input type="date" id="mydate" size="16" class="form-control"></input>  
21:              </div>  
22:            </div>  
23:          </div>  
24:        </body>  
25:      </html>   
26:    </apex:page>  

Felt like posting it, as datepicker can take time to implement as it took mine, it works awesome on Salesforce1.

Thanks Happy coding!!
