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.

#4 KISS *is* the right way forward...

This is an initial announcement. Starting off simple is a good thing, since it reduces the chance that drastic (and wrong) efforts are taken. Once the two groups work more with each other, I'm sure more drastic things will be announced...say, like what level fo support SVG and when!
