Hi all,

Just a quick note (I'm still on PTO) that I'm increasingly concerned we
might not find a single mobile browser that meets the various requirements
we need to make a fully functional app. E.g.:

- Mobile browsers that support HTML Media Capture: Chrome, Android.
- Mobile browsers that support storing blobs in IndexedDB: Firefox.

Although this somewhat makes sense as it is what we're trying to show and
improve with Coremob, it might be a serious concern for the MWC app.

We're investigating workarounds right now and we'll have an update shortly.

Some of the options imply bypassing IDB altogether for the MWC app, or
going with a PhoneGap wrapped app native app instead, but both have their
own issues and imply more work.

Best,

--tobie
