Developers of mobile apps are focusing on developing apps for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) mobile operating systems but one person believes in making the web a place for apps as well. A CNET article reported on the news and discussed about how mobile web can get back developers from Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS.
Dominique Hazaël-Massieux has led mobile-web work since 7 years at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which is an organization that web founder Tim Berners-Lee established to chart the web’s future. Massieux is ahead of everyone who are making efforts to bring the apps more on the web rather than Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s App Store or Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Play Store.
“It could be used as an alternative replacing most native apps. All the advantages that come with the Web – share-ability, address-ability, openness, a completely non-proprietary system – all these are available to mobile app developers,” Massieux said.
Being optimistic about the web’s success for mobile devices, Hazaël-Massieux knows that this process could be very demanding but it will allow programmers to reach any device by writing programs that are not limited to a specific operating system like Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iOS or its associated services and that would help developers to increase the number of users for their apps.
“The goal is to put in place a framework that makes [the technologies] more understandable to developers and to drive the technology based on developers’ needs,” Massieux said.
Developers have preferred building apps for native iOS and Android apps because the web has lagged when it comes to convenience, features and performance, a problem Massieux is facing and a point which takes him to the losing side. But, he’s not going to lose the hope as he is seeing mobile web growing from poor to average as browsers have adapted new web standards and now he’s taking his efforts to the next step by making web technology competitive.
Being 26 years old, the World Wide Web has transformed the computing industry and every operating system needs a web browser today. When Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) started, its developers were not concerned about its users whether they would be on Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Windows or Mac computers and when users loaded Facebook’s page in their browsers, the service got updated automatically.
The overall number of web users is much greater than those of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Android and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iOS users and it became very difficult for people to live without web today. You may find lots of people who don’t use an iPhone or an Android based smart-phone but it’s nearly impossible to find a person who don’t uses web at all. If Massieux got succeeded in his efforts and convinced the developers, we could see marketplaces much bigger than Play Store from Google Inc. and App Store from Apple Inc. in future.
