Re: [Public WebGL] about the VENDOR, RENDERER, and VERSION strings



I believe that mobile OS makers should provide facilities to manage
the ACLs for all applications including web application shortcuts
represented on the device's homescreen. How will mobile OSs whitelist
local storage? "Always allow" GPS access?

Adding a web application to your system should be similar to
installing a native application via an app store -- the user may be
prompted for various extra security permissions and accept them (or
automatically grant "mostly OK" permissions like GPU access). When the
web application shortcut is deleted out of the local web app
container, some permissions may be revoked.

This process must be as simple and straightforward as possible. Making
web app bookmarks/installs secondary to native app installs with even
one more step in the process is poison. The click friction has to be
low across both web and native apps on the device.

Best,

David
