as you said: the same workflow as what’s currently proposed with VS Code as 
a webapp.  Having the program’s UI *inside* the page instead of another 
window is more ergonomical and less confusing.

Actually I find the very concept of (floating) windowing very anti-
ergonomic, cumbersome and confusing, and I seem not to be the only one: 
not only because of the popularity of tiling WM (among whose who 
understand the thing), but because I saw many eldery people in course of 
learning windowing systems be very stressed and frightened by stuff that 
pops out at random places on the screen and that you have to consciously 
think about where to place and how to dimension on the screen…

More of it: it supports the concept of running software natively and 
locally, instead of on top of javascript/DOM as it is becoming very 
popular (maybe mainly for that reason, as well as easiness to launch from 
a webpage with js), which would go in the interest of Free Software, I 
believe (as supported in the WWWorst AppStore).
