There seems to be the impression that I, or anyone, is arguing that
absolutely every UI ever is best implemented in the browser. Of course,
not, that's silly.
But most audio control UIs are quite simple. All we need is a couple of
sliders and knobs and such. It's quite straight forward and perfectly
appropriate. Transport controls, faders, knobs, XY pads, step
sequencing, toggles, all that kind of stuff. Having remote controls and
plugin UIs and such in the browser would be awesome, and it's not
anywhere near the realm of things too large to be feasible, or too
complicated to be portable (even to that atrocity you mentioned).
If you need very high performance realtime visualization or whatever,
sure, dont use the browser. Duh.
Put differently: nobody is going to be rewriting the main Ardour UI in
