Mozilla has launched yet another project from its labs: Mozilla Labs Weave:
As the Web continues to evolve and more of our lives move online, we believe that Web browsers like Firefox can and should do more to broker rich experiences while increasing user control over their data and personal information.
One important area for exploration is the blending of the desktop and the Web through deeper integration of the browser with online services.
Weâ€™re now launching a new project within Mozilla Labs to formally explore this integration. This project will be known as Weave and it will focus on finding ways to enhance the Firefox user experience, increase user control over personal information, and provide new opportunities for developers to build innovative online experiences.
This means that Mozilla will give us a framework to work on. All settings and other state can be saved up in services.mozilla.com.
Is this something that we want to see? Or another thing that makes us think “oh no, FF3b2 was so promising wrt performance and memory usage, focus on that”. NOTE: The same people that work on hard core browser stuff may not be the people working on the weaving ;)
