Oracle and SUN Jonathan Schwartz keeps singing Sun's favourite tune - that Web services, not desktop apps, are the future. "The majority of the applications that will drive the next wave of innovation will be services, not applications that run on the desktop. The real innovation is occurring in the network and the network services," Schwartz said.

RE[2]: Hey, it's simple

So all you have shown is that current webapps aren't perfect and current browsers are ideal for running webapps. Both of those things aren't huge problems. Technology like XUL makes adding a more conventional UI to your web app possible and people are discovering new and clever ways of creating better and better webapps every day. Web based applications is a fairly young field, I see things improving in the future.
