Mozilla wants you to build desktop apps with web technologies
This is great news (via Ajaxian):
The final change we’re announcing today takes the form of widening of
the goal of the Chromeless project, that is specifically, we now want to
Make it possible to build desktop applications with Web technologies.
This change emphasizes two things: first we’re interested in
ultimately building Chromeless into something that can be used to ship
real products. Second, we want it to be possible to build standalone
desktop applications in addition to browsers.
It jibes with what I wrote in my post on Chrome OS
Chrome OS aggressively drives innovation in the web technology space and
I hope this innovation will make it to all desktop and mobile operating
systems. [...] I would love web apps to become first-class citizens on all operating systems.
