since the world is flat, and US is where ideas are generated for many times, and many times chinese internet companies started to learn from US, the so called copy-to-china model, so many people both in china and US thinks that chinese internet guys are only doing copy-to-china;
however, this is not true; the chinese it companies are actually doing a lot of innovation, some based on US ideas and made many changes, some others ideas and products, which might probably not found in us as well;
starting this post, i’ll start a series of post called ‘ ’;
this first post here is to introduce the big player ’s web app store by web qq;

and indeed, it has nearly 1 billion users.
2. with Tencent’s qq open platform and web app store, that 3rd parties can develop all kinds of applications in the web;
and now there’re really a lot of applications there, many popular web sites have developed their features as web applications on the ’s qq open platform;
