Hi Daniel,

having such an API would be a great thing. Right now we need additional 
applications on the host to integrate with smart cards in a web 
application [1].

My feeling so far was, that browser manufacturer didn't want to 
integrate with client side hardware.

Has that changed and who is driving this ?
