Web Apps are applications that run on any device, and can be distributed through any store or directly by the developer. The first release of the Web Apps Project contains stable APIs, developer utilities and documentation to help you get a jumpstart on building Web Apps and stores.
Developers can use this release to publish their application to users, or to create a Web App store or directory. Users can review a gallery of user experience ideas and beta-quality versions of Firefox and Chrome add-ons that integrate the Web App experience more tightly with the browser.
