Mozilla has outlined its plans to develop an open, cross-browser web application store system.
Google announced its own plans for a Chrome web store earlier this summer, back in May.
That Chrome web apps store is now open to developers. You can see a video demo of Google's online web apps store for more details on those plans.
For its part, Mozilla is proposing a web apps store that is accessible via any browser, including Firefox 3.6 and above, Firefox Mobile, IE8, Chrome 6, Safari 5, Opera 10 and any WebKit mobile systems.

"The open web is a great platform for rich applications," said Mozilla chief Jay Sullivan in a blog post this month.
"It would be even better if it had additional capabilities to ease discovery, acquisition, installation and use of apps, while also enabling monetisation for developers."
