Google Developing an API to Connect All Web Apps

A new post on the Chromium blog reveals that Google is working on a new API it calls “Web Intents.” Just as Android Intents makes it easy to share data across mobile apps, Web Intents would make it easier to connect Web apps. The post explains: “In today’s browser ecosystem, web apps are completely disconnected or require the use of complicated APIs in order to make use of a third-party service, e.g., posting a comment to Twitter from your custom publishing domain. What if we could give sites the ability to leverage these services without any knowledge of the chosen service, except that it provides some set of predefined functionality?”

According to Google, Web Intents would allow developers to connect to Web services “with as little as two lines of code!”
