Google "Over the last few months we have been hard at work getting Native Client ready to support the new Pepper plug-in interface. Native Client is an open source technology that allows you to build web applications that seamlessly and safely execute native compiled code inside the browser. Today, we've reached an important milestone in our efforts to make Native Client modules as portable and secure as JavaScript, by making available a first release of the revamped Native Client .[...]In the coming months we will be adding APIs for 3D graphics, local file storage, WebSockets, peer-to-peer networking, and more. We'll also be working on Dynamic Shared Objects (DSOs), a feature that will eventually allow us to provide Application Binary Interface (ABI) stability."

If the application has been built right, you only need to download the web-application ones.

And who said you had to run your server somewhere far away, how about a plug-server ?

Browsers are for viewing documents online.

If I want applications I use an operating system.

There are 0 differences from what is being sold as Internet nowadays and what some of us were doing with client server with teletypes 20 years ago.

Now the teletypes just look prettier.

I guess I run my own teletypes. :-)

Also setup/run them for others.

And I'm fine with that. I like how they get updated over the web.

It is kind of like a Debian server. Potentially it should be the same for an Ubuntu desktop. Although that still seems to still be a bit of a hit or miss for some people. Not so much on the update side but upgrades still seems to be a bit of a problem.
