Web Applications - The Wave Of The Future

Rakesh Pai's article Web Applications - The Wave Of The Future goes into the why and how of web applications, mentioning the mature use of JavaScript as what makes them possible.

The key here is mature, which to me means browser and operating system independent. Older web applications were/are all too often tied to a single browser and operating system (almost always IE/Win), making it impossible for me to use them. Let's hope the developers of future web applications know better than that.

And I really need to check out Bloglines, which the article mentions as an example of a web based application.
