Future of Web Development (according to Samsung)

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Interesting presentation the future of web development that says much about Samsung’s agenda. This includes:

  • Increased web application functionality. Web sites that behave like applications including privacy, security, fast / responsive, offline working and OS level notifications – getting to where Palm’s webOS wanted to go
  • Integration of speech control and recognition into web experiences
  • Integration of Bluetooth
  • WebShare seems to be a bit like some of the functionality of Apple’s Continuity and micro-formats
  • WebVR and Physical Web integration

The web VR is interesting because of the effect that even a small amount of latency can negatively impact the user experience.

Web Bluetooth reminded me a lot of iPhone / desktop ApplePay integration / authentication of payments.

The overall vision would be of concern to security consultants and mobile carriers.
