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).
