A collection of articles, ideas, and rambling from a guy who wrote some software that one time.
Do you really think IE's market share will decrease that much? Perhaps the runtime environment will be IE, Firefox, and WebKit, as it is now.
Yes, but that will be after MS announces that IE will be using the Gecko engine and fork the bloody hell out of the codebase. So it will be Firefox, Firef*ck, WebKit and JS.
Something reminded me of this today.Mozilla seems dead set on making this prediction come true, though we have yet to see what kind of impact Firefox OS will make.I'm ambivalent about this. On the one hand, it seems fundamentally wrong to use something called Hypertext Markup Language as the foundation of an application platform. And the many quirks and deficiencies of the Web platform are well-known. On the other hand, the Web seems to be our best hope of a credible alternative to the current crop of proprietary platforms.Glyph, do you still think the latter part of your prediction will be bad news if it comes to pass? (Odd phrase, that; perhaps we can hope that it will come to pass and not to stay.)
