> Dear Firefox Testers and Enthusiasts,
> For the last 6 months we have been working heavily on HTML5 web based applications. An entirely new way of distributing and running applications that are all based upon web standards and entirely portable.
> What is wrong with Android / iPhone apps ? For the user your apps don’t work on other platforms, you constantly are required to buy apps across your phone, desktop, and tablets ? Shouldn’t you just be able to download once, and let the rest take care of itself.
> This is the first test day of the web apps infrastructure that will help power the revolution in application usability.
> Tasks for the test day:
> Verify defined functionality of the app
> Exploratory test the system
> Verify you can purchase / delete / reinstall applications
> Play Games / Test out awesome web apps before anyone else
> Give us feedback on what you feel is intuitive or not !
> To cover the work throughout the whole day we have created an etherpad ( Everyone should check the separate sections. Feel free to work on an area you are interested in. There will be mentors in the channel to help you out.
> * The etherpad will be updated throughout the week as more information is forthcoming*
> Welcome to the new world of truly mobile and ready to go apps. Web Applications will soon be available for all of our over 400 million users world-wide. If you have time on Friday Dec 2nd, please join us on IRC at #testday.
