Talk:Summit2008/Sessions/Proposals/History & Future: Imagining the Web Browser of 2015
notes from the session
Q: What about Social?
- ties in with Weave in a lot of ways
- opensocial and other ways of encapsulating the social web
Q: Wouldn't automatically scraping for data end up with a lot of spam and events that you wouldn't want?
- need to control for that
- there are ways of judging interest
- many sites are marking up
Q: Would data aggregation cause problems with multiple users per machine
- maybe, possibly, need to think about that case more
Idea: building space for add-ons specifically to extend/add buttons
- want to do this without limiting the ability of add-ons to innovate/create
- allow for multiple toolbars / switching between toolbars
- Ubiquity is also looking at this by trying to allow add-ons to implement Verbs
Q: A lot of assumptions in this presentation which should be called out
- should we be keeping bookmarks?
- more marketshare is our goal?
Q: Have you thought a lot about the cognitive state of the browser user? I find that it's messy, and doesn't map well to application specific sites.
- New York Times reader is cleaner, feels more like I'm browsing news
- perhaps we should allow websites to control the UI a lot more
Idea: A lot of this depends on new protocols, which implies that we should be designing standard protocols
