  • The Web is Dead | Informatech CR Blog
    faster and be launchable easier Visual appeal Buttons images tabs they all look nice and respond quickly Development of rich interfaces is easier For all I love the Web dealing with browser incompatibilities and CSS rendering issues is not fun All that is good and true but don t desktop apps on the Mac Linux and Windows also access the hardware fully Don t some of them have nice UIs What s the catalyst for all this interest The answer in my opinion is convenience KISS Yep what users of apt get have known for years relatively easy installation of native applications via the Internet is very desirable I think all of us might ve moved to webapps for email news etc because the administration and acquiring of desktop apps was just inconvenient another good point would be feature creep but that s another post altogether Consider Windows and buying downloading software later installing configuring it ain t pretty It s more convenient just to access a webpage no dealing with configs or anything at the cost of reduced expectations If Microsoft and the rest of the packaged software industry had embraced Internet distribution we might be somewhere else now but they did not and thus a lot of PC software moved to the Web So now you go click on a store and you app download and install Once you see it in action you shouldn t be surprised people like it even when ceding control and maybe even freedom Hopefully one day a desktop OS could have such an option The Web is dead Long live the Web So is the Web dead Not by a long shot as some would point out and likely to remain very profitable given Google s latest earnings The Web remains a vital information resource both of text and now of richer context like video and that s not going away anytime soon Also there are many millions of PCs out in the world that now exist for the sole purpose of Web browsing consider all those machines with WinXP that are just not upgrading But will the notion that everything must run in a browser prevail At this point clearly not That said there are concerns of bypassing the Web and walled gardens that shouldn t be discarded hastily but I think a new balance is emerging The new old world will have extremely media rich apps delivered and coexisting with information and webapps via the Cloud A perfect example of this is the killer Flipboard application that turns your social network and Internet feeds into a readable magazine Where magazine apps have been nothing more than glorified versions of the interative CDROMs of the 90s without the linking that made the Web what it is Flipboard integrates the feeds and gives you a way to see Web content from the app Brilliant 9 933333 84 083333 Share this Email Facebook Twitter Like this Like Loading Related October 21 2010 by
