CNet has a new editorial called: Web tools blaze trail to the past.
They have interviewed a bunch of different players, who have interesting opinions.
One of the interesting pieces is:
“For a company serving that many people at that scale, Google is taking uncharacteristic risks on their front end to do things that other companies with old infrastructures in place don’t know are even possible,” said Laszlo’s Temkin. “I’m incredibly happy that Google is taking this step, because it’s forcing the market to realize what to us has been incredibly obvious about rich Internet applications. It’s forcing the portals and others to notice the value here. That’s tremendous for us.”
By the same token, Google denies any ideological attachment to its standards-based approach. Instead, the company says it has evaluated all the options before it and will continue to do so as new technologies become available or existing ones get refined.
