Most browser releases with the exception of Microsoft’s I.E. have switched to a rapid-release schedule. Both WebRTC and asm.js, however, have the potential to change how developers create web apps.
Built-In WebRTC Support
WebRTC allows developers to create web apps with built-in video and audio calls and it allows file sharing without the need for any third-party software or plugins. A number of companies are already pushing WebRTC. but, only Google’s Chrome browser until now supported this tool in its mainstream browser releases. Now that Firefox also supports it we will likely see a large number of startups and established companies examine this technology in better detail. Microsoft, so far remains the only major vendor who has decided to go ahead with a different standard for the same functionality, so it would not surprise me if in the future Internet Explorer will support WebRTC out of the box.
