Web 2.0 The web browser has been the dominant thin client, now rich client, for almost two decades, but can it compete with a new thin client that makes better technical choices and avoids the glacial standards process? I don't think so, as the current web technology stack of HTML/Javascript/Flash has accumulated so many bad decisions over the years that it's ripe for a clean sheet redesign to wipe it out.

The web's not broken enough to warrant a complete rewrite. Good secondary school essay, poor OSNews article.

Don't let the bad feedback put you off contributing but if you want to throw out the current "web client" stack you need to replace it with something that craps gold.
