Doesn't the traditional payment industry having some 500M EMV cards in circulation that only
can be used in CNP-mode on the web prove my point that it is pointless building on browsers?

I wouldn't even play with the *idea* building a Universal, Decentralized, Secure and Convenient payment system using current web technology.

The W3C folks are against the idea of letting third-parties extend the browser through native code.

The market does not agree at all with this and therefore continues putting their money on Apps.  Strategy anybody?
