I agree with this... but I also think it points out a problem: the web 
browser is being used both as an information delivery tool and as an 
application deployment platform. 

I've often felt that the requirements for those two things are so 
vastly different that different tools should be used... one way or 
another, publishing to the web and developing web-based applications 
is simply too hard and too expensive...
