Another step towards "What is an OS? I do everything in the browser."
I don't really like it, though I see large-scale advantages when people
don't have to install office anymore. ;)

GUI-wise, using HTML5 sounds sane to me. Definitely for static UI
elements, no idea about meters.

Thanks to browsers, the Javascript compilers are damn good these days.
If they add decent ways to do DSP with it, I don't see a reason why the
whole concept shouldn't fly.

Just my €0.02
