“The software maker’s multitouch Firefox project is still in its infancy, but the goal is to eventually offer web developers a way to tap into a new multitouch support structure to create online games and alternative touch-based user interfaces for web apps in Firefox. At the moment, there are no hard and fast plans regarding exactly when multitouch support, which would be accessible through new APIs, might land in Firefox. The current goal calls for the new tools to arrive in Firefox 3.6, which is due later this year.”
