“Mobile web” applications are often criticised for having inferior performance and a limited feature set, compared to “native” apps. To redress the balance, browser vendors are working on a number of technologies to grant them superpowers.

In this talk, Chris Mills will discuss the inherent historic problems with mobile apps and which technologies are stepping up to fill the holes. This includes device APIs such as Web Activities, Notification, Network Information and Vibration, offline apps, installable apps and performance enhancers such as asm.js and Emscripten.
