All the substantial investment and effort over twenty years of extensive research, development, and deployment of graphical user interfaces for desktop and client/server applications, have been more or less thrown away with the introduction of the Browser and HTML. For example, do you know that until today, HTML does not support some of the most basic widgets such as a Data Entry with Spin Buttons? Appalling!!!. However, things are improving a bit with the adoption of new technologies such as AJAX and browsers are becoming more than just surfing tools by including collaborative and social networking features.
After many frustrating years, it is now time to bring all the functionality, usability, and high navigation onto the web. The next generation of web sites and web-based applications must meet and even exceed some of the features and standards typically found on desktop and client/server applications.
