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.

Dont forget we might lose some democracy and privacy if BIG corporations are going to rule EVEN MORE of our computing.. People must start to think about privacy concerns with all this push towards thin clients .. Start lobbying your goverments to regulate the providers better in this Age of the Internet ..
