TL;DR: The shift from desktops and laptops to smartphones and tablets means people are using more apps and less Web, with Web browsing constituting only 20% of mobile use.
Does this mean the Web is dying? It would seem so. I just hope projects like FirefoxOS can help revive it.
But what’s so great about the Web anyway? Amjad sums it up pretty well:
"The Web as a concept and as a technology has great virtues that can’t be found elsewhere in the world and we must try to salvage it or come up with something similar. It has been a big driver of great social and economical change that has been unprecedented in the history of the world. The idea that someone can make a webpage in an afternoon, put it up online and have thousands, or even millions of people be able to find it and interact with it is completely mind-blowing. The fact that machines can understand the entirety of the human knowledge, organise it, and present it in the most convenient of ways shows that there is a great value in preserving an open and connected web of information, information processes, and communication technology."
