I wonder whether https://github.com/zefanja/biblez-ng would work 
with Internet Explorer 11. It has never been tested with 
anything else than Chrome and Firefox OS, but there are rumours 
that IE is now rather compatible with modern standards. Yes, it 
works even offline for me (so, Firefox OS now HAS offline Bible 
... I am still excited over it!).

Most likely some patches and modifications would be needed, but 
I think it SHOULD work. EnyoJS (http://enyojs.com/) which is 
a framework used for biblez-ng officially supports Windows Phone 
as a platform.

Which leads back to much more fundamental question ... isn’t it 
finally time to “bless” JavaScript (particularly 
https://github.com/zefanja/swordjs) as a third official platform 
for Sword, aside from C++ and Java? There will be most likely 
never be any way how to make C-bindings for Firefox OS, and it 
seems that well working JavaScript might be better platform for 
many phones anyway (I am not much versed in the Windows Phone, 
being a Linux guy, but isn’t JavaScript officially the primary 
development language in Redmont anyway)?
