Mozilla lights up joystick, tickles developer gaming bellies
Explain web apps tech through power of
Mozilla launched a new gaming project through its Labs wing earlier this week, in a move to get coders to play with fancy browser and web technologies.
The Mozilla Labs Gaming experiment is all about making developers even more comfortable with web apps.
"With these technologies being delivered through modern browsers today, the time is ripe for pushing the platform."
The org has also debuted its Game_on 2010 browser game contest that kicks off at some point this month.
"Traditionally games and game developers have been at the forefront of technology, often pushing the boundaries of what was thought possible," Finette said.
In other words, Mozilla wants to whet the appetite of programmers by getting them to make and then, of course, play games.
All of which falls nicely into step with where the browser market's tech is heading - the world of apps.
