TL;DR: ( in order of can-I-use-this-now-or-what )

  1. Add-on SDK ( aka Jetpack )
  2. Open Web Apps / Web Intents
  3. BrowserId
  4. WebAPI for Mobile
  5. Harmony

Note: Mozilla experiments with the web and help create standards that work with all browers ( admittedly, with mixed results! )

Ah, standards.

Fortunately, the charging one has been solved now that we've all standardized on mini-USB. Or is it micro-USB? Shit.
