Mac OS X It's one of those days again. A supposed security threat appears, and the internet loses its collective brain and starts panicking like Alpha and Omega's kingdom come. This time around, it's a trojan horse thing (it's a trojan, worm, and root kit all in one, though) that targets Mac OS X and Windows. As it turns out, though, the threat this thing poses is not very large (at this point in time).

I agree that eventually WebGL will replace a lot of this, however do remember, that we were doing OpenGL in applets in 2006 using Java.

4 years later and HTML is still not there.

I would prefer that everything was open like html and javascript - but the fact of the matter is that plugins provide content producers with means for doing stuff that wouldn't otherwise be possible.
