Web activities and App Discovery, two new experiments from Mozilla Labs

Not everything is invented on the web, and in fact Mozilla engineers are still behind a series of projects that could be the prelude to new features that we will see in Firefox or new technologies that we may use in the future. Mozilla Labs has just published some of these projects, in which they have been working in the last months and we are going to stop at two: web activities and the installation of web applications from the browser itself. It goes without saying that these new technologies are in the experimental phase and still have a long way to go. Web activities: So that we understand it in a clearer way, this technology is designed so that some web applications interact with others through our own browser. It is about being able to use the functions of a web service in another web service locally, without the need for both services to communicate through any API. Discovery App: This is an experiment by which allows the user to install any web application in the browser itself. Just visit any supported website, jumping a pop-up window that will invite the user to install that application. All the information along with the tools that we will have to install in Firefox if we want to experiment with these technologies are in the Mozilla Labs blog post.
