People can treat their smartphone like a computer, because they do not need anything outside of it. Still, I don't see me launch Visual Studio on my smartphone.

Multiple threads are kind of available to web apps via web workers, though in practice it works more like starting multiple processes and passing messages between them. WebAssembly will end up with multithreading support sooner or later, which will be interesting.
The browser will always have to share resources with other applications and services running, limiting its resources.

I don't think it's even fair to call browsers 'browsers' anymore. They're more like a complex system of interlocking parts that just happen to have a web page renderer attached. If you load a URL and all it does it download a wasm binary blob and a bunch of graphics assets to run a game, you're not really browsing the web in any meaningful sense.
You are still downloading content from a (trusted) server and rendering that in a specialized application that runs in a limited environment (because the content cannot be trusted to touch anything outside the browser, like a local HD).

If trust goes down, people may switch to some other application that renders a UI on a client.
