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.

In fractal vector space, absolute size and position are irrelevant - what matters is relative position, relative size, and relative rotation.

Vector widgets in a (zoomable, rotatable, etc..) 2D or 3D vector space transcend certain issues that result from pixel-based layouts, such as dependence on resolution and device features.
