  • Browser Wars V: The Angry Birds Era

    by John Hrvatin, Brendan Eich, Chris Wilson, Arun Ranganathan and Charles Mccathie Nevile

    The browser wars panel has been an SxSW institution, and gives us a forum to bring browser vendors to to the table to take stock of new developments on the web. As in years past, we'll bring Mozilla (Firefox), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (IE), Opera (Opera), and maybe Apple (Safari) to the table to speak of developments on the web, and to share their unique perspectives as those who make the platforms on which the web is viewed.

    Our tag line this year places tongue firmly in cheek. Interesting chatter continues about applications on the web. What's the story with browser-based app stores? While we're at it, microdata has been embraced by Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo, but the web seems underwhelmed by schema.org. And why hasn't HTML5 video changed our lives already, and why aren't there any real peer-to-peer apps on the web yet? And, is WebGL ready or just sodden in hype? We'll get candid on this panel, and take stock of the era of modern browsers, mobile apps, and Angry Birds.

    At 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Saturday 10th March

    In Salon K, Hilton Austin Downtown
