Dear Web Architects,

As you all know the "App" phenomena has after the introduction of iPhone and Android become at least as popular as the Web.

There's also a bunch of applications that so far haven't made it to Web like Secure/Convenient/Decentralized payments.  Given the fact that the latter has been "on the radar" for 20 years, I think we can safely conclude that it won't happen either.

With this posting I would like to challenge the current thinking (very slowly DUPLICATING the functionality of the "App" world into the Web), by proposing an OPTION enabling developers to rather COMBINE the power of both worlds:

A notable side-effect of this proposal is that enables Web innovation by third-parties who currently often have no viable alternative to "App"-only solutions.

In a somewhat more market-oriented way: Revitalizing the Web.
