The release of atom Editor and followed with the release of facebook’s Nuclide and also the new Visual Studio Code made me think that Browser based app is a very powerful platform, who knows maybe next time a true native office suite app, or a multimedia app could build based on that, since Nuclide and Visual Studio Code is an IDE that have tons of functionality.
