Google announced that it will launch a new service with a last-minute statement. Oddly enough, Google only gave the name of this new service, but the details of the features it will host are a bit confusing. You can read the related Google blog post here.
The name of Google’s new service to be activated will be the ‘Advanced Web Apps Fund’, that is, the Advanced Web Applications Fund. “We don’t have a definitive description for ‘advanced apps’, but it’s possible to say that there are websites with a phone app-like interface and client functionality,” Google says of its new service.
WebTransport and File System Access will be funded for the development of similar applications
Google talks about Chrome features such as File System Access, WebTransport, WebAssembly in its blog post. What Google simply wants to achieve with its Advanced Web Applications Fund is new features, libraries and tools to make it easier to set up advanced sites, and demo applications that will demonstrate the uniqueness or power of advanced web applications.
Google’s blog post states: “While the Chrome team is working hard to develop new features, we are only responsible for a small part of the work. Web application developers depend on countless people in the community who have built a strong ecosystem of APIs, tools, demo apps and other materials.”
In terms of requirements, Google states that you need an Open Collective account to apply for the Advanced Web Apps Fund. What are you thinking? Please do not forget to share your thoughts with us in the comments.
