Firefox OS can technically do this, and technically does this.
Web pages and native apps still has a few essential differences that prevent us to interchange them practically, at least for now. The latter can be compiled and optimized into binaries that executes performantly on the specific device/platform. Current web standards don't make pages/sites/apps this way, the web browser needs to load the text codes then interpret and run them on the fly, which is much slower. 220.127.116.11 08:33, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
