This seems cool at first glance. Convenient anyhow. What is the practical differences between this and what could be done with the webviewer previously? Except for not needing the addition of a visual component, of course.

That is exactly it. The JS Web Bridge does not require a Creator to instantiate a UI component so you can use this with a Logic Module. An example here would be if you were writing a script for date formatting. No UI component would be necessary in this and so we needed a “headless” solution for adding in the code.
