Here's a wiki page Lionel Laskè has been keeping ticking over regarding HTML based Sugar efforts, most of the discussions so far have been over on the sugar-devel at lists.sugarlabs.org:


Manuq has been working on some early Sugar-web based activity offerings (to help debug and test the new web api's, intended for the as yet unreleased Sugar 0.100):

	Clock Web: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/sugar/addon/4691/
	Get Things Done: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/sugar/addon/4692/
	Memorize Web: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/sugar/addon/4693/
	Stopwatch Web: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/sugar/addon/4694/
	Paint Web: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/sugar/addon/4695/
	Gears: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/es-ES/sugar/addon/4696/

I'm not aware of much progress yet providing a path towards lower level Sugar features such as Neighbourhood view, Activity collaboration, the Journal, entry sharing, the Frame, for the Android based XO-Tablet offering.
