Yesterday I talked a little about rich web UIs. I wasn't the only one, apparantly, after the release of "Google Suggest":http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en the whole web-development-involved "blogosphere" is talking about it. A couple comments I got and found on my post say that we shouldn't make web applications rich, because if you want richness, you should use a normal client application that runs on the OS, not the browser. In a way I agree with this. Many people seem to get the idea that we should reimplement all applications we use on the desktop today in the webbrowser. That's probably not a good idea. But that doesn't mean that we can't enrich the web-applications we have today. If we want to read our mail in a browser, want to participate in discussion in a browser and manage our websites from a browser, we'd better make the experience as smooth as possible.
