Dietrich Kappe has written about the hybrid world of browser extensions and Ajax.
As writting extensions gets easier (e.g. GreaseMonkey, or the extensions themselves) Ajax applications can potentially benefit from a tighter integration model with the browser.
Dietriche uses MyStickies as an example:
The sticky location is persisted to the mystickies site where you can also use a webapp to search, manage, etc., your stickies. It’s a direct manipulation bookmark that doesn’t reside just on your local computer.
Now I happen to think mystickies is pretty cool, especially if they implement some of the features on their roadmaps, like sticky sharing (how web2.0!). But what interests me here is the application architecture.
