http://asmjs.org/spec/latest/#introduction looks really interesting as a 
target arch for fpc.

AFAIU (but I might be wrong) the Android GUI API is based on HTML4, 
while the FirefoxOS GUI API is based on HTML5. I understand that HTML5 
is a lot more versatile when it you want do display LCL visual objects 
in a Browser including providing GUI events that trigger Pascal events 
via an event queue (see EXTPASCAL / EXTJS for HTML4 plus Java script 
based stuff, that might be used via Comet based HTTP server 
functionality and often seems to ask for some trouble).

Moreover a future move of Android's towards HTML5 would be rather 
logical (keep you crystal ball at hand).
