It's great that you use the term AWESOME WEB!  That's the label we used 
for a concept we launched last year that focuses on the new generation 
of the web platform.

This has become the basis of the work we've been developing in the 
Augmented Web CG too.

I think the points Rob makes below are really important.  At the heart 
of these is deep linking which makes social sharing, bookmarking and 
search engine discovery possible and provides one tap/click access. 
This is the native applications achilles' heel.

And now when we combine this with the post HTML5 features discussed 
above there's a good case that the web is not "just as good as native". 
  The web platform is clearly jumping ahead in leaps and bounds.
