Re: [DRAFT] Web Intents Task Force Charter

The api to be defined wouldn't define how native apps would participate or register to participate, that's beyond scope for W3/DAP/WebApps and is an implementation detail.

It might be better to list the data sharing before registration as the primary goal is the sharing and registration is merely a means to that end.

Hi Robin,

Thanks for setting this up.

My understanding is that intents could be used as a mechanism that will
allow the web browser to talk to other apps on the device, and those apps
can  be web or native ... From your description it seems it is only web
app to web app communication ...
