Following Instagram‘s path, Vine, an app born into the mobile world, now sets his foot in the web world. With a simple blog post, the app announced the launch of its web feed. This new feature will provide full functionality to its users; you can now view your home feed and like, comment and share videos.

In addition, you can view other users’ profiles, as well as the videos they have created and share your profile with others in order to be discovered more easily. All in all, the web version of Vine offers nothing less than the full features of the mobile app. What makes it different from the app? Vine’s team has reportedly added a web-exclusive TV-Mode button which enables the sequential playback of the videos created by a user or those existing in your home feed.
Other extras include some minor changes in the user interface, including “Like” and “Revine” presets, instead of icons. “This release is just a first step toward bringing you a richer, more enjoyable web experience,” Janessa Det, a Vine web engineer, wrote on the company blog. “We look forward to introducing more improvements in 2014.”

This is surely a below-the-waist hit for Instagram, whose web feed unfortunately does not offer photo shooting or video recording functionality. What do you think Instagram’s next steps will be?
