Here's a really useful application, it pulls the webapps from all over the web under one market to find them. These "apps" are just HTML5 WebPages but they work wonders, only downside is no notifications.

No notifications = a web browser.
One of the prime reasons why advocate of apps rave so much is because they want to be notified when their friends post a pic of their baby's first diaper change! If web apps need me to go to my content, it kills WP philosophy where content comes out of the app, onto the live tile TO YOU, instead of you opening each and every app to see if there is new content.
So, this isn't a future of apps, this is the past of apps before Apple created apps.

Rather than criticizing Microsoft to use do not track, the web standard community should come up a universal way to deliver notifications to browsers - so lightweight apps like Facebook (they suck, that's why their HTML5 app is so bad) and Domino's Pizza can be just web pages. This will save a lot of development costs (don't need to buy access to all app stores, no need to use mac to develop an app for iOS)

It's about content delivery. If the user needs to go to the content, he did that in 2005 and WM failed. But if the content comes to the users, he can choose where he wants to waste his time.
