"...you don't even need a web server to host your application."
First off, there has to be a web server involved somewhere, that is just a matter of reality (unless this starts with FTP or NNTP or some shit like that...AMZN:// ?). Depending on how you mean "server", a web server isn't just about <tags>, it can add a level of security. And what about XSS attacks? With this much dependency on JS can these be exploited even further or slicker than in the past? (I really don't know the in's and out's of XSS, so they're real questions, not rhetorical).
I guess in the end, no web server equals 1 less security risk, but also 1 less security level. So this changes nothing, well of course besides locking customers further in.
I presume they mean because an S3 bucket can be accessed via http. Therefore, as the article stated, just upload your app into an s3 bucket and set the permissions accordingly.
So a serverless web app is one which relies on a remote machine not supporting http connections?

No web server, runs in your browser, exposes lots of power to the developer...
...sounds like a perfect platform for malware! I'll bet you could deliver tons of spam or viruses from there.
