Mozilla Labs announced a pretty cool new browser concept dubbed Aurora.

It's pretty flashy and integrates some experimental UI concepts that are
questionable. However, one of the fundamental, underlying principles of
the browser is the concept of data portability. The idea that you own
your data and can pipe, mix and match data from different websites was
key to the browsing/collaboration experience.

I caught myself thinking "You'd use RDFa/uF to do that... and that...
and that" throughout each video. Here are the direct links to Vimeo
