HTML5 facades

Video Course on Real-Time HTML5 with Node.jsfacade is a very thin layer of abstraction of an API 

it does not add more support for support or more functionality 

the goal is to have thin layer between the implementation and the code you write <- because these can change (vendor prefix, slight changes etc.)

if you are using a facade you only have to change your code at one place when the native APIs change 

my note: exactly Nicholas Zakas and Osmani were advocating for. See the box framework T3js
