Hey guys!
I have worked several years as a web developer and continue to create
personal projects actively.
What can I say - the web obviously has lots to offer. However, the
client-side has more promises than
actual accomplishments, especially when it comes to cross-browser things.

Want it or not, even jQuery has problems, especially on (you guessed it)
IE. The amount of hacks one needs
to put it to make even normal html look the same in FF and IE is enormous.
Experienced html guys might not
notice how much hacks they automatically put into the code.

Not to mention the memory problem. Browsers simply cannot handle as much
memory as a desktop app can
and you never know if settings of the visitor of your web app will allow
him to not have his browser crash.

As for graphics, each solution available today has loads of issues and
nothing I've seen is satisfactory. Google
stuff is interesting, but how lasting it will be - nobody knows.

I would agree that the web has potential. I would agree that Java failed as
a dream of an ultimate platform for all.
But I would not agree that the web is there already today, nor that it is
close. In terms of actual interaction it is
very, very far away from what even a Java tool like Processing can offer,
not to mention all of Java.
