Tamper-proof websites - decentralising website security

Description If a web-app makes promises about behaviour, security or privacy (e.g. "we never see unencrypted content"), then users should want to know when the behaviour of the web-app changes.

Can we do this? Can we make a web-app that only needs to be code-reviewed once, not every time? Can we allow users to share known-good versions? It turns out we can, using existing web technologies - no plugins or extensions required.
