For Web apps to be useful and successfully compete with native applications, they need to be able to access device features, such as the camera, local file system, Bluetooth, and more. Obviously such a mechanism needs to be secure and respect user privacy. In this episode Thomas Steiner, a Developer Advocate for the Web at Google, joins to discuss Project Fugu, and the benefits and capabilities that it already provides, and will provide in the future. Thomas, who is actively involved in this project, explains the design and development process for this project, and how it’s being rolled out and tested.
