Two Widgets Specifications Published: Widget Access Request Policy; Widget Interface

Author(s) and publish date


The Web Applications Working Group published two Widgets specifications today:

  • A Candidate Recommendation of Widget Interface, which defines an application programming interface (API) for widgets that provides, among other things, functionality for accessing a widget's metadata and persistently storing data. W3C invites implementation of this specification; see the ongoing implementation report.
  • A Proposed Recommendation of Widget Access Request Policy, which defines the security model controlling network access from within a widget, as well as a method for authors to request that the user agent grant access to certain network resources. Comments are welcome through 17 January 2012.
