Let’s Get Ready to Surf

Before we discuss the Google Wave Client in detail, let’s briefly review some general information about the Client and its use by early adopters such as yourself.

The Google Wave Client

Using the Google Wave Client is very similar to using other web-based applications. Once you sign in on the Google Wave website with a Google account, you have access to a rich application that runs completely in the browser.[18] You should note a few things about the Google Wave Client that make it a shining example of what you can expect from web applications that use the latest standards and features available on new browsers. It should come as no surprise that the Google Wave Client takes full advantage of many of the features supported by HTML5, including web workers (background processing threads), canvas elements, application caches, and local databases.[19]
