his is an experiment around installable web applications. What you'll find here:
Addons for different browsers that provide better support for web applications: including new features (like search and notification support) and better integration into browser UI.
Documentation, including an in-depth discussion of the design and goals of the project.
Files related to setting up a local develoment environment. Currently a nodejs script that will allow you to run a webserver that serves up the various sites contained here.
The system presented here provides for both free and paid applications. It presumes that there will be multiple stores from which users may install applications. Developers are free to list their applications on multiple stores and to enter independent relationships with each. Developers should be free to self-publish their application, or create their own curated application directory. Applications deployed using this system should work on desktop and mobile platforms, and should degrade gracefully when advanced browser capabilities are not present.
