W3C forms Web and Mobile Interest Group

Wednesday 21 August 2013 | 13:48 CET | News

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has launched a Web and Mobile Interest Group that will accelerate the development of web technology so that it becomes suitable platform for mobile applications and cross platform development. The forum is intended to include organisations that commission such products and services, designers, developers, equipment manufacturers, tool and platform vendors, browser vendors, operators and other relevant participants in the value chain that creates and operates such products and services. Participants will focus on a range of sectors including retail, advertising, technology, network operators, content creation and content distribution.

The initial deliverables of the group include Core Mobile Web Platform 2012 Deployment Status, which will summarise the various actions that the interest group is undertaking to ensure that stakeholders facilitate the deployment and adoption of the features that have been identified in the Core Mobile Web Platform 2012 report. The group will also publish new versions of the report. Standards for Web Applications on Mobile will take a broader look at web technologies under development that are relevant to mobile devices and tracks their status and adoption. The group will deliver gap analysis that provides an overview of the differences between the web as a platform on mobile and other platforms and ecosystems, both from a technical and commercial perspective. The group will also provide additional reports on use cases and scenarios for context-relevant user experiences, multi-device and cross-device user experiences on the web and usability and efficiency considerations for the web on mobile.
