A new paradigm, WAB(Web Application Browser)
Gimbalz aims to abstract operating system and to provide a better solution for accessing web pages and application.
-Web browser UI is not meant for accessing WebApps.
-Web browser doesn't provide synchronization among WebApps.
-Web browsers depend heavily on desktop applications.
-Web browsers are only good for static pages.
Gimbalz provides the solution to the above problems and much more.
Gimbalz is a mix of operating system and browser features, enables WebApps to dock, provides better UI for handling WebApps, synchronization among WebApps through API, central repository storage option, offline usage, customization.
Even though web application has grown in strength and are sure to replace desktop counterparts, we need to understand that web os kind of solution is still immature and browser is not the conducive platform to develop one such solution.
Gimbalz aims to be a desktop application which stores its present state in central repository, so its anywhere, anytime accessible solution. You can access your profile to have your working platform instantly. Portableapps.com kind of solution is also a viable option.
Semantic based scripts in gimbalz will enable better synchronization. Gimbalz may prove to be the grand mashup enabler.
We have a seizable community of firefox developers, extension and theme writers. If we can all work together and build Gimbalz, its gonna provide a radically new genre of application.
Lets invade desktops and gadgets to create a true web experience. I hope to see lot of ipod like applications running gimbalz on top of it in future.
