Firefox 3: Connecting your web apps with Microformats

Richard MacManus reports that Firefox 3 will allow semantic markups that connects your web apps together. This is a great idea, one that seems to merge the web 2.0 paradigm with the semantic web paradigm. However, I can think of ways this could be used by spammers (automatically add dates to your calendar, call all of your friends in Skype, etc) just by visiting a site, but I am sure there will be some sort of built-in system to keep this from happening.

    oh man! ha, skype hacks? or even better, a skype virus. oh man. that would be amazing for spammers to target peoples browser skype plugins. it’s only a matter of time. i think it’s hilarious. they better lay on the browser security strong. If this comes to fruition, next year could be the year of the browser as PC. can’t wait to see what happens.
