Even someone whose tablet is a few pixels short of a full screen should now be able to clearly see that ‘apps,’ while a necessary evolutionary step, are nothing more than a temporary nuisance while the final code is written. We no more want to manage app updating than we wanted to edit a config.sys file when adding a Windows Program. The more complete code will use local RAM smartly, streaming code, caching it proportionate to demand, and updating it without user intervention. Users just want a URL… A thing, not a process. Hybrids always win.
