The neat thing with web standards are web browsers need to implement them for all platforms. Since Chrome and Firefox are supported on macOS/Windows/Linux/x64/ARM/etc, this means all web standard are both hardware and software cross-platform!
WebAssembly is another example of a web standard that has been smuggled out of browsers. WebAssembly binaries are already being run directly on servers. Cranelift is the WebAssembly just-in-time compiler implemented for Firefox and has been smuggled out to Wasmtime & Wasmer. This enables Wasmtime and Wasmer to be cross-platform WebAssembly runtime/compiler.
WebGPU is an upcoming web standard that is the evolution of WebGL 2.0. WebGPU is a modern low-overhead graphics API. WebGPU is backed by Vulkan/Metal/DirectX 12 to render graphics in the browser.
Chrome's implementation of WebGPU is Dawn. Dawn has already been smuggled out to mach/gpu and wgpu. mach/gpu and wgpu allow one to build cross-platform applications for any modern graphics hardware.
