People who can’t install Scrivener (or run any executables), i.e. the Chromebook generation.

More than 50% of US schools now use Chromebooks, and these kids are growing up quickly:

I follow https://www.reddit.com/r/chromeos/ and people are starting to ask for Scrivener-like functionality but they want it online because they don’t want to buy either a Mac or a Windows machine.

But I’m not trying to justify their pricing strategy. Someone will come along and offer something similar for a lot less, and that might bring the price down in the end.
