Mozilla announces prototype of web app store
Having announced its plans for a "open web app ecosystem" in late May, Mozilla has now released a prototype. This may be an attempt by Mozilla to pre-empt Google's announcement of the Chrome Web Store.
In the May post on the Mozilla blog, Jay Sullivan, Vice President of Products, writes "Supporting the needs of Web developers in their efforts to develop web sites and apps that aren’t bound to a specific browser and work across the Web is core to Mozilla’s public benefit mission."
A demonstration video of the prototype store is available at the bottom of the release announcement web page and more information is available from the Mozilla Open Web Applications web page. Feedback on the project is encouraged through the Mozilla Labs Forum and updates on the project will appear on the Mozilla Labs Blog.
