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.

I don't think reinventing thin client is a good idea right now. As far as I get it, the web apps now migrate from the state of early childhood to simply childhood, and they still have teenage, adolescence and maturity on their way.

XHTML+CSS+JS technology isn't even stable yet, so it can't be a solid ground for a real analysis needed to create a really innovating *NEW* thin client technology.
