I think the browser will be the future. Some day nobody need to install apps. Everythink can run and load fast in the browser; even first class games. The browser will become what the App Store is nowadays. Downloading apps isn't comfortable and that's why the browser will be the point of touch, will be the platform of the future. Especially in the eCommerce sector there are fewer and fewer apps running natively and it will become more and more. That's just my two cents.
