General Development RoughlyDrafted Magazine has posted an in-depth article that examines Sproutcore, an Apple-backed Javascript framework that approximates Cocoa on the web. The article examines why using HTML, Javascript, and CSS just may win the battle with Flash, Silverlight, and Java for rich internet application deployment. Sproutcore enables web developers to create full-featured cross-browser web apps an in a Model, View, Controller convention, much like Rails. The Sproutcore site has some great tutorials that show off the framework.

Yeah, ExtJS is actually quite amazing. I've been working with it pretty much every day for the past five months and I'm constantly surprised at how mature and well built it is for being such a young framework (it started out with a good foundation though). It doesn't feel like a hack like many of the competitors.
