Allow showing web pages inside Spotify

It would be nice if the Spotify clients allows to show web pages inside the desktop client, and utilize the play button with a JS api. This would create a 'lightweight' alternative to the defunct Spotify Apps system. I really wish Spotify allows people to interact with the player again and could develop cool extensions like Spotify Apps did, but where the apps are web pages loaded from the web.

I am afraid it is not possible because it would expose internal APIs that could be abused.

However as I stated in another post in this week I am working on a cross streaming service music playee (currently now for Spotify) that will allow such things and much more the community wants. It is a spare time project so it grows slowly.
