This data exchange standard between applications, called OData is a specification made by Oasis, an organization that works for standard communications.
The OData specification 4 has support for many big companies, including Red Hat, IBM, Microsoft.
The new standard provides a communication architecture of REST type to create Web services and applications that can communicate with other applications and devices, including mobiles.
And it also provides a data format based on JSON, which is the container of data that applications would exchange. It can be used with any programming language.
So an Android phone can use data from an online service from Microsoft, and send them to a social network to a user displays them on his personal wall.

OData JSON standard. For data. It is an alternative to XML, faster to process, but XML is better suited when the data should be read by humans.
OData version 4. For services.
Although it worked for months to develop a version of Firefox for the Modern UI interface on Windows 8, whose codename Metro is still used, Mozilla has decided not to distribute this version or continue to develop it.
The reasons are many. A major development work for a not so popular platform. Closed platform while Mozilla works to promote free and open products. And lack of interest of testers for Firefox on Metro.
Besides that, to put a browser in an interface that can run itself in a browser, as demonstrated by ChromeOS does not make too much sense, even if Microsoft considers this the greatest finesse. And serving its financiel interests also since it takes a percentage of the revenues of Metro applications.
In short, on Windows 8, you can use Firefox in desktop mode, and if desired, why not use a tiled interface as Tiloid in the browser?
