I would also be interested in a better web transceiver. Preferably something that works on mobile or tablet as well. I travel a lot and being able to link into my home repeaters with EchoLink is very nice. Not something that is currently easy with Allstar. 

+1 for updating web transceiver.

Ham radio needs to attract, and keep, the attention of that same audience.  App_rpt and Allstarlink are great for that.  But this audience doesn't come to us with anything more than a very basic, novice background at first.  A web transceiver seems like a handy tool for those new young hams to explore.
