Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software Describe Joint Vision for Web Application Framework

Tuesday May 25th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software have published a paper outlining their vision for Web applications. The paper, submitted in preparation for next week's W3C Workshop on Web Applications and Compound Documents, describes a device-independent Web application framework based on HTML and backwards-compatible with existing Web content. The two organisations are keen to get parts of this framework in place soon to prevent a single-vendor solution (see Microsoft's position paper) becoming dominant. Co-author Ian "Hixie" Hickson's provides more insight in a recent weblog post on the matter.

You're right. It's already here and it's called MyXAML. See <http://www.myxaml.com> for details. If you don't see the connection with Gnome and KDE may I add that MyXAML runs on Mono and you can use Qt# and GTK#, for example.

I've also written up an interview with the MyXAML mastermind Marc Clifton, see <http://xul.sourceforge.net/interviews.html> for details if anyone wants to find out more about MyXAML.
