Hi all

Probably it's a metaphysical discussion, but I don't like the idea of web apps always trying to replicate/match the features of native apps. I believe Web apps should try to offer a great service and a great UX to consumers, if this means they should have access to some native features ok, but we should not just focus on that.
Said that, I agree that Ring 0, though based on the intersection of Android and iOS, is basically what developers expect now when creating web applications.
