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.

"Good to see Opera and Mozilla woking together" not neccessarly against anyone!

Opera and Mozilla both produce excellent products (browsers, ...), and the development of web related standards should be this way. This should be the norm and not the exception. As long as that chimp (GW) is in office, it will impossible to crack down on monopolies (as MS or others in different industires) in any way.
