You are right. All platform compatible, with the same standards. Unlike mobile.

Also, not App Store dependent, although currently DNS-dependent...

I guess this just has the consequence that the future of "view page source" is no more.

If the Web will ultimately serve to replace the native mobile platform, then the compiled distribution files should serve no purpose to the end-user as well.

There would be no point in maintaining a "beautiful" page source if it would not matter to the end-user. Everything would be for the sake of network efficiency.

If this is the direction of the Web, I would say "view page source" is as good as dead. But at least it promotes platform-independence, right?
