Besides this, there’s one more good addition to this. WinJS is also becoming cross-platform; hence will support multiple browsers and devices. Thus, web developers will get the advantage of using WinJS for multiple platforms. On this new addition, the Windows App Team commented on one of the blogs on Microsoft that,
