"IndieUI" - Independent User Interface - helps web applications work better with different devices (such as mobile phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT), and different user needs. IndieUI defines a way for different user interactions to be translated into simple events and communicated to web applications. With IndieUI, web application developers will have a uniform way to design applications that work for multiple devices and contexts.
