Article: HTML out of the Browser

This post is more than 2 years old.

Very happy to announce the first publication of an article of mine on the Mozilla Hacks blog. This article is a bit of a departure for me. Less techy and more touchy-feely. Broadly, the article is a look at how HTML (well, web standards in general) are branching out of the browser. Probably some (or most) of this is known to my readers, but I felt like a look at this phenomenon was worthwhile. I hope you enjoy it as well.

What if user clicks a link in such an “application”? Especially what if that link corresponds to a different application living in a separate browser profile?

It should just work. Obviously if you wanted to let the user view HTML content as, well, content, and not part of the app, you may want to use a pop up window of some sort to differentiate it from the app itself.
