Ubiquity: control for the user of the web

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in 3rd Places of Learning

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)


Ubiquity for Firefox from Aza Raskin on Vimeo.

Ubiquity’s goals are to:

Empower users to control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.)

Enable on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyone (not just Web developers) to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)
