Desktop clients also use underlying stacks (e.g. libpurple) for some of 
their work - similar to JSCommunicator relying on JsSIP.

If JSCommunicator sends the proper instructions to browsers to use (or 
favor) Opus and similar for other features, then to me that seems 
similar to desktop clients expecting the desktop to have some audio 
output configured for audio and and have adequately powerful graphics 
driver working with X11 for video.  And a keyboard attached for text :-)
