Submission + - Cocoa for Windows + Flash Killer = SproutCore (

DECS writes: At WWDC, Apple unveiled an update of .Mac renamed Mobile Me and billed as "Exchange for the rest of us," clearly targeted at iPhone users, many of whom are new to the Mac platform. But the big news behind the scenes is that Apple's .Mac group built its new Mobile Me web apps using SproutCore, the company's open source (MIT license) JavaScript framework with a complete application stack based on MVC and making extensive use of Cocoa-style bindings, localization, offline storage, and other features. As RDM describes, that makes SproutCore essentially a free "Cocoa for the Web," allowing developers to deploy sophisticated, cross platform thick client web apps on Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer 6/7, and Mobile Safari on the iPhone, all without requiring a proprietary plugin runtime such as Flash or Silverlight because everything works in simple HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Cocoa for Windows + Flash Killer = SproutCore.
