Speaker(s): Shane Caraveo

Proposed Track (Technology & Product):


CANCELLED: Due to some last minute changes, we've had to remove this talk from this track. If there's enough interest, we'll revisit the possibility of adding this back on as a BOF session on Sunday late afternoon or early evening. You can also catch up with Shane on Friday, April 20 if you're going to BA MDN Hack Day.

Imagine a world where a users favorite websites are integrated into their user agent, becoming a continuous part of their web experience. If that were your website, what more could you do? The apparent boundaries between Desktop and the Web, Browser and Content, are slowly fading away as new techniques and technologies make the web more capable. In Mozilla we’ve experimented with a number of ideas around creating closer ties between the web and your user agent. Some projects, such as Browser ID and Web Apps are already making their way into production. We also have a number of new projects still in early stages, such as our new Social API, Device/Web APIs built for Boot to Gecko (B2G), Web Activities and similar APIs such as Web Intents. These new APIs for the web will allow websites to do more with less while enhancing user experience, privacy and security. While I’ll touch briefly on most of these new APIs I'll primarily focus on showing the new Social APIs and Web Activities, and show how you can start to use and experiment with some of these new technologies.
