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.

If you're that unhappy with this article then could always write a follow up piece

This article is like writing an article saying we should switch to cold fusion plants for at least 50% of our power needs sometime within the next 20 years. Without a detailed technical description of how these plants can actually be built the article doesn't say much.

Also writing a follow up piece is kind of pointless since all it would say "sure, but how?"
