A stricter separation of sites and apps.

Usage of less JS on websites, and if necessary, by progressive enhancement, so the pages work fine without it. Make the client work as little as possible. It's the most inclusive thing to do.

All while enabling a broader choice of technologies for more interactive non-vital web-applications and games, which I guess WASM is heading to. So Flash I guess, just not so battery-hungry and more secure.


Oh and while we're in this mess, I'd love some faster build times. I don't know what my webpack does for 10 seconds every time I change a comma. I can't wait until I don't have to support non ES6-Browsers and can develop with native modules. All the Webpack/Babel-Stuff gone \o/
