  • WEB RUNTIME
    • Web Runtime is the term used generically and collectively to refer to the components that are provided to execute Web Applications (e.g. including either a Widget User Agent, or Browser, or both).
  • WIDGET USER AGENT
    • The Widget User Agent is the collection of all components, over and above the Web Engine, needed to support installed Widgets.
  • JAVASCRIPT API ACCESS
    • A key feature of Web Runtimes is the provision of APIs, supplementary to the standardised client-side DOM APIs (termed JavaScript APIs in this document) that provide access to services or features of the underlying platform itself, such as the file system, camera, or geolocation functionality. In principle, these JavaScript APIs could be accessible to any content being rendered by the Web Engine, including Widgets executing under control of the Widget User Agent but also including Websites being rendered under control of the Browser.
