mozilla prism

It’s cool to see the Mozilla Prism announcement. It’s another entry to the “Desktop Apps with Web Technologies” section of my post on the Proliferation of Web App Platforms. Interesting that it is also announced the day Leopard comes out, with its enhanced Cocoa bindings and Dashcode support. I’m curious to see if and how it will provide support for things like Dojo Offline and Google Gears, and other native storage providers. I’m also curious to see if this lets you sandbox apps with essentially different Firefox instances so that one poorly performing web app won’t crash the others currently in use.
