The Web Background Sync Community Group has been launched:
This group is developing a specification to allow web apps to run tasks in the background. This includes running after the user has navigated away from the page, closed the browser, or the device has fallen asleep. We focus on preserving user privacy and resources while providing a useful and expressive API.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2015-03-04 by Josh Karlin. The following people supported its creation: Josh Karlin, Mat Scales, Chris Wilson, Michael[tm] Smith, Olivier Thereaux. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
