    Every invocation target, e.g. sys.browser, belongs to a specific app. Other apps can't override existing invocation targets.
    Have never used WebWorks so can't say anything on the remaining part of your post, sorry.

    Had hoped that targets beginning with sys.* were defaulted apps. This is different than using Cascades for web functionality. With Guardian missing it may be best that targets are hardcoded and Cards can replace Cascades functionality.

    I think its good that BB10 can make use of a few invocations. Developers could implement the use of certain protocols like an end point or api/url. Take email for example. If the forms action sumbits to mailto protocol a script can apply prefix and suffix values with the formdata.
    mailto:?subject=Email&body=Hello⚓

    Navigator object has a method to register a [url, window, document] with the browser, that url will only run secure assets over https. The Document can compliment this registration with an open search description XML document linked in the head. There isn't much to the xml widget but it can be super useful. Like applying transforms to a data set in the document load event before the window event so window can apply second transform or post the data to a channel or object for further processing.. from the assistant or any url/qr code. In windows new chromium browser, 'registerProtocolHandler' causes a registration in the Operating System. reading sys.browsers source code looks like opensearch points to libUniversalSearch object but idk about RegisterProtoclHandler yet. Provides a cacheable client / surface that runs as trust if base is set.

    What I'm getting at is that there is room for a light, fast, and integrated api built on the web. The good web I mean, with wai-aria for states and properties. QNX themselves describe html5 as layer to hardware peripherals. I do beleive following the accessibility standards any web framework should be useable but more importantly interoperable.

    Interesting, so you're saying once could create a layer to support web apps and services as first class citizens on BB10? Or are we talking about something else entirely?

    Basically yea.The Navigator registers an Object in your path, requires TLS though and I don't know its minimum requirement.

    It's not consistent with other browsers.

    If you are familiar with stacks and states that is how I would describe using the OpenSearchDescription from BB10 desktop, client can do most of the work for a small table using balanced async methods and encoding. A proper search or translator would need a remote or embedded driver.

    We could extend the Navigator API natively with system level goodness, basically mirror the PWA standard so it doesnt break anything but with system calls wired in and a payload that matches what the modern Navigator API response types are?

    I've have a bit more time after this week to start working on this thankfully

    That would be excellent. Do you have the QNX software package, Momentics, or are you just using shell?
