Desktop Web Apps – Landed on Nightly, Try it Out!

Hi Everyone,

We’ve landed support for the major feature I’m testing on Nightly – Desktop Web Apps Support on Windows, Mac, and Linux! For the Linux support, I’d like to thank our contributor Marco for working hard to deliver support for desktop web apps on Linux. See his wiki here to see what he has done so far for Linux web apps support and what he plans to do in the future.

Additionally, the Mozilla Marketplace is live and ready for testing with the desktop web runtime on Nightly for Mozillians only. If you are an active Mozillian and want to help test the Mozilla Marketplace or desktop web apps on any operating system, then go to this wiki to see how you can get started testing the Mozilla Marketplace with the desktop web runtime. For anyone who is not a vouched Mozillian, follow the instructions in this post to help get yourself started with testing desktop web apps. Email this feedback alias on your opinion on desktop web apps. Want to get more involved testing at Mozilla? Then, let me know what you are interested in by email! Here’s some references to how you can help out:

Have any questions? Then, join #qa and ping me (jsmith) or email me directly with your questions.

Sincerely,
Jason Smith

    How do you remove an app? I do not see an option in the Add-ons interface or a separate menu item.

    • Uninstalling is done through Add or Remove Programs on Windows, Deletion of the Application by moving the app into the trash bin on Mac, and deletion of the files created directly on Linux. We currently do not support app uninstall in the Firefox UI, although I know there’s plans to do that in the future.

        Thank you for your reply. I read through the wiki and found about the uninstalling bit. Wonderful stuff, keep up the good work.

  2. I tried it on Linux, installed a few web apps, updated the wiki page and filed some bugs (763354, 763358, 763360). The desktop integration is cool, but is there also going to be a way to launch my installed web apps from the browser? I never use my desktop’s Start menu, I’m browser-based (plus a terminal and media player).
