In this case God is the coder and only people he wishes can see the code, the browser is or bodies which determine reality through senses, unlike angles who I don think see with eyes, but see with intellect and understand things in totality form the code without seeing them with human senses. They don't even obey space/time they just illuminate.
I would say the angles see code but not the same as God. I would say the angles see a simple code like C+ where God sees code as binary the code which all code is built on.

OK, with the caveat that human beings could not see the raw code of the website without divine assistance, I think the analogy stands.  However, any effort to understand metaphysical issues like transubstantiation through these means are going to be problematic at best since one is trying to ground a metaphysical concept in the physical world (hence my question about the website analogy).
