I'm going to suggest something that seems logical to me, but I'm 
probably way off target.

It looks like a whole lot of work has gone in to the widgets 
specifications - and it looks like that caters for digital signing and 
has the Widget Access Request Policy, and for running js/html applications.

So a couple of questions :)

Do the major browser vendors plan to support widgets in the main UI window?

How would CORS and WARP work together?

and - is it a false path of hope for me to be thinking that I could make 
a JS/HTML5 application and have it run on the clients side, with no 
server dependencies, in all major browsers on all major platforms?

Best,

Nathan
