With the advent of "apps" with granular security permissions and better distribution channels, there are more cases where native clients are fully feasible too. However, on the other side of things, HTML 5 is heading towards the same goal with offline application caches (in addition to the existing browser caching features). Of course that doesn't address code reuse, or the fact that interpreted languages (like JS) are inherently many times less efficient than compiled or JIT-compiled code.
 
C# is a pretty awesome language for writing stuff in, no matter what you're doing - most of the efficiency of native code but much of the flexibility of a scripting language, implementations on a wide variety of platforms including mobile, one of the most well-rounded featuresets of any language, and great developer tools. And, you can even use it on Google's Native Client[^] - Bastion[^] is a game written in Mono for NaCI.
