    WeatherBug already works on linux. At least on my machine it launches as a standalone app.

    Firefox has supported this since last year (on every OS: Linux, *BSD, Mac, Windows, Android, Firefox OS).

    ^This.

    And I've noticed that Google's "Soon to come to Linux" really means "Who cares about Linux, let's work on something else now!"

    You mean Firefox Marketplace?
    https://marketplace.firefox.com/

    Well, there is no link to it anywhere from Firefox, and nobody have ever heard of it.
    I thought it was just for Firefox phones, until I looked it up today.

    Yeah, I guess Mozilla is just not as good as Google when it comes to marketing

    Anyway I don't see what's the difference between an application written in JS/HTML and an application written in any other language. It's just a language, a framework, there's no direct link between cloud apps and web apps. Any application, not only web-based ones, could use cloud services and could harm our privacy.
