It's funny when people complain of the lack of apps and then I click on the link provided:
Instagram - available
Path - no idea what this is and I probably couldn't care less
Vine - available
Google apps - wtf
YouTube - I very rarely have an issue playing YouTube videos
iFunny - iNo
Google Chrome - fNo
Don't get me wrong, the more apps the better but if WP just continuously chases has-been apps then it's never going to be taken seriously.

I am very happy with 6tagram, 6sec etc....but don't fool yourself. These apps can not be marketed by Microsoft, Phone Companies, Nokia, etc as they are unofficial. As that they are unofficial, they can have access revoked at anytime. I use 6tagram, and have since beta. So my hashtags are not usable which is not the biggest deal t me, but that would harm many users. I love third party developers, but you can only market the official apps....so we need to see more and see them yesterday.Follow Me: @FinsUpDNC

I'd rather have frequent updates, Halo, achievements, great imaging, etc. and we are on our way.

Path and Vine are coming to Lumias (at least) as per Nokia's announcement. So we are getting most of apps , just give it time!
About the browsers, one can not create their own engine and run it on WP/WinRT. So we can only have skins for IE with "those features". Well UCBrowser has them and does a great job. And we can obviously expect IE11 WP to get better with WP8.1. Opera too has plans to create their own app (just bing for sources, too lazy :P )
And for iFunny, umm just pin it's site ? http://ifunny.mobi/f Or even better , switch to 9gag! http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/st...5-7609d91057ef Or imgur ? http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/st...9-59ce7abf35e8

I don't want to crash myself on a pole in the middle of a roadway or drive all the way to a dead end, Here Maps assures that doesn't happen.
Psst - I don't know how to drive.

I don't really care for ANY of those apps. But I know some pals that didn't switch to a WP just because of Chrome or Path.
Also I think that we must push for some first party apps, so more developers may be interested in the platform.
Finally, I don't want any Googleish stuff in my phone.

Not everyone ditched google just because they moved to windows phone I still use my Gmail account. I wouldn't mind some google apps, but I don't need chrome, I like UC browser and maybe Microsoft could sometime soon windows 8 the internet explorer on phone, tablet, and computer. They should make it like UC browser and take advantage of the tiles. And I won't more apps period, I want some games too, but Microsoft cares more about volume, and you can't get volume without apps so they aren't making much progress.
