Isn’t it great feature and once you have connected your WhatsApp web client with your Smartphone, you can easily send messages to your contact using your web browser. Currently WhatsApp web is only working on Google Chrome and requires WhatsApp to be online also on your Smartphones. Though having WhatsApp available both on the web client and Smartphones looks total waste of your data pack to me.

As per WhatsApp blog post, currently web client to iOS users is not provided due to Apple platform limitations. Hope they work it out for iOS users too.
