RE: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions

Yes.  Why do that?  It's harder and it locks everyone to the same flying
pig.  Why not get the operating system services from the operating system
and enable the high-performance applications to breathe instead of sucking
in the bad air and polluted event systems that are so evident in HTML?

Sharable scripting frameworks a la ECMAScript?  Certainly do that.  Forcing
everything into divs?  They used to call those 'frames' before Windows
adopted that term for panes. The first markup browser to use those publicly
was beaten up for doing it.  What's the point of plugins that can't do their
jobs by virtue of the fact that they are plugged into an object framework
designed for an infinite length 'page' instead of an immersive cueing frame

I think Howard Rheingold is right.  Web designers have no memory.

I see the browser as the OS for these apps.  Is that too cliche?
