One of the most exciting experiments I have seen in a while by Mozilla Labs. The development community of Firefox is working on enabling all kind of web services by using text in a browser. Think of typing “route description to Amsterdam Central Station” in your email client and being able to automatically insert a Google Maps route in the mail message.Vodpod videos no longer available.
A very nice example of the distributed web in action – and which shows the importance of extensive web service API’s and microformats. It will be interesting to see what OS players like Microsoft and Apple will do with these developments on your desktop.
