>> Web apps are just websites, that's all that B2G "apps" are.
> I seriously doubt it. If web apps are “just a websites” then why do we need all these new APIs?
There are not a lot of new APIs. For something like say Angry Birds, *no* new APIs are needed.
For something that sends SMSes, then the new SMS API would be needed.
But the real point is that these new APIs are going to be in all browsers, they will be standardized as part of the web. (Perhaps with changes, that's how the standards process works.)
>> "Pin as app tab" for example is nothing to do with the Chrome Web Store, but it is "appy".
> And how many users this feature have? This is genuine question, not a sarcasm. I, personally, know exactly zero real users of said feature, but then, I may be unusual. If you have some statistic then I'd like to hear it.
Well, I use it and most people I know. But like you, I don't have statistics. The "pin as app tab" feature is not that important though, it just makes things a little more convenient. Websites are still websites.
> So you want to say that Facebook Connect will magically propel Mozilla's store to stardom… hard to believe, but well, it is a point. I doubt it'll be enough to save B2G, though…
What? No, I just mentioned FC as an example to show that Chrome Web Store apps are *not* normal web pages.
