With the right plugins, Visual Studio Code is nearly there in terms of being an IDE.

Warcraft in the browser would be easily doable with WebGL, and since Unity offers an HTML5 compile target, game developers wouldn't even need to do any special work to make an in-browser version of their game available.

All of the browsers have indexedDB built in, now. People have compiled SQLite to WebAssembly to make it run in the browser. It's not a database server, I know. But I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen in the near future.

The browser doesn't literally need to be an OS to effectively serve as someone's operating system. For a lot of people I know, everything they need to do in the course of a work day can be accomplished through a browser. Effectively, the web is their OS and the browser is the client via which they access it.

As a developer, I used to think it would never be possible to do all of my work via a browser. But then I see things like StackBlitz. Sure, that's only useful for certain types of dev work. Right now, anyway. I'm interested to see where all of this goes in the future.
