Web Capabilities (Fugu)


Fugu’s mission is to close the capabilities gap with native to enable developers to build new experiences on the web while preserving everything that is great about the web. We will rapidly bring new, powerful, cross-OS, and standardized capabilities that unlock key verticals on both mobile and desktop. Giving developers these new tools will empower the web as a place where any experience can be created

Fugu is a cross-org program to bring powerful new capabilities to the web platform. It manages incoming requests from partners, determines demand, prioritizes them, finds a champion, tracks the development, and helps organize the release and documentation for the capability.

To share updates on capabilities work and discuss opportunities and priorities, we have monthly video chat meetings. The meetings are open to all Chromium contributors working on Fugu capabilities, regardless of affiliation. Note that these meetings tend to be high level, and don't dive into technical details. For an invite to the meeting ask on the #fugu channel on or email Agendas for upcoming meetings and notes for past meetings are captured in a shared Notes Doc
