Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

Honestly what a stupid answer, HTML/CSS/JS are not the total answer for web or desktop or anything, I've used .NET and HTML/CSS/JS, and damn the last combination makes your life misserable, who ever invented the CSS layout system should be judged for crimes againts the humanity, the browser may be optimized to run JS "at the speed of light" but is still interpretated code inside a browser, that makes it slow and CPU hungry (just try using Google Wave and you'll see, I don't know how google plans to make that thing reliable w/o a pluggin).

In other words, get a clue.
