> ... full heterogeneous application suites that run in an elaborate VM has been wonderful for users of desktop applications...

Since the announce of Webassembly, I have a scenario in mind. As you say, the VM can become a complete hypervisor that can can run a full OS. At that point, the browser will become useless and we could get rid of all the complexity of CSS and HTML and close that episode of internet.

Another point is for AI and robots, beautiful design is not a priority.

...and then inside that full OS, what are you going to use to replace what CSS and HTML do now?

Gopher :-)

:) Might want to put SSL around it, though. And then strictly forbid anyone from reimplementing an HTML browser inside the browser OS!
