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.

I completely agree. HTML + CSS + JavaScript were not built for full desktop like apps. The fact that some clever developers started using them for that is what triggered the browsers to get better at it. But in the end, it's like using a rock with a nail: it will work but it will be a pain.

Even Google recognized that, that's why they came up with GWT so they can abstract JS a bit.

With .Net and Visual Studio, MS has simply provided the best development environment for their Windows platform. I've developed in ASM and C/C++ for years before moving to c# and I must say it's just a pleasure to code.
