InfoQ, Tim Bray on the Future of the web

I often view or read the InfoQ, a site with articles on software development, programming. Almost all content they publish is very good. One I just saw was: Tim Bray on the Future of the web, an interview with someone of Sun. Interesting view has Tim on the web. He’s quite sceptical on RIA. Many ordinary users we’re quite glad when webapplications came – as they replaces often hard to use applications created using Visual Basic, VC++, Delphi and others with pull-down menu’s, ill-designs user interfaces. He also considers a bad thing if the back-button is disabled, many users find very relieving if they can go back once they’re confused. Gives you something to think about.
I don’t agree for entirely – they’re a lot of very good applications too, and there are quite confusing webapplications. But still, maybe for many applications he’s right.
