I’m at Foo Camp listening to Ben Goodger of Google and Robert O’Callaghan of Mozilla. Both are deeply technical people who are developing web browsers – Ben is developing Google’s Chrome browser, and Robert is part of the Firefox team. (And he lives in Auckland, along with several other FF team members.)
Ben and Robert telling us what’s coming up in both their browsers, and they are asking the web developers in the room – a couple of dozen – what they want to see in the browser. This is such a great way to develop browser code – there’s a direct feedback loop between the guys who develop the new stuff and the people who exploit it to make cool websites.
