W3C: New Web standards for developing mobile Internet applications


The Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) has announced a new standard that is says will make it easier for developers and content providers to create dynamic mobile Web applications.

The Mobile Web Application Best Practices, published as a W3C Recommendation, offers practical advice from many mobile Web stakeholders for the easy development and the deployment of mobile Web applications that work across many platforms.

Dominique Hazaël-Massieux, W3C Mobile Web Initiative Lead, said, “These guidelines include sound advice from real-world Web apps developers, telcos, and browser vendors.”

Web applications are already replacing native applications in many computers, and a similar trend is expected on mobile devices in the near future. The Web also makes it fast and easy to deploy and update applications without requiring any intervention of the user, and enables seamless integration of cloud-based services.
