Good old blogger Joel Spolsky just wrote a great overview of the state of web applications.
I'm inclined to agree with his prediction, that we're still in the
midst of evolving the technology in web apps. On the desktop all apps
have a consistent look and behavior but web apps have their own unique
and different user interfaces. On the desktop you can copy and paste
between apps, but not on the web except for a few words of text. I
wonder how many years it will take for web apps to reach the level of
design stability that desktop apps enjoy...
