When Apple released an SDK it was an admission of defeat. Chris Messina put it beautifully in his blog post Did the web fail the iphone?. With millions of developers and amazing momentum, the Web has too much to offer for it to not be a premium application development platform. So in that sense the browser was not the premium piece, the platform was.
When Google released Chrome, each one of those questions seem to find an answer.
All in all the Chrome platform is of great signifcance. I think its real competitors are J2ME/Java/Cocoa/WPF and not the browsers. Only time will tell if the Web as a real platform will materialize.
