The Browser will Rise Again

The Browser will Rise Again, according to Paul Prescod.

I'd like to think so. The problem that I have it that HTML's set of controls is so limited.

Java Applets, of course, get around this to some extent, though you certainly can't assume the presence of Swing, so you have to stick with AWT. You still get Paul's big four advantages, but the downloads can be pretty big...

Update 21st October: Browser UIs - is XUL the answer?
