Metro Dynamis Web. Is the core framework, needed for your Metro Style Web Application. Is intended for web applications, used through a web browser.

- Auto layout. Define areas where you want Metro Dyanmis to take care of the flow and let the framework do the rest. You can define auto columns and auto collections/lists. It looks at how much screen real state your users have and recalculate all positions, so your information is displayed beautifully on every screen.
- Unobstrusive. Metro Dynamis stays out of the way on your development work flow. Just mark the elements with classes and the framework will do the rest.
- Extendible. You can use CSS to extend the look and feel of your application with complete freedom, just define your own styles or overwrite the ones given using the cascade.
- Resources. You have access to a increasing collection of resources like, Themes, Controls and Assets to enhance the User Experience of your application.
I thought this pretty unusual. The side scrolling took a little to get used to, it's just so "not web" but was "very Metro."
