To Wash It All Away (pdf)
the web is not for the faint (and yet it works) Anyways, my point is that browsers are too complex to be trusted. Unfortunately, youth is always wasted on the young, and the current generation of software developers is convinced that browsers need more features, not fewer. So, we are encouraged to celebrate the fact that browsers turn our computers into little Star Wars cantinas where every - one is welcome and you can drink a blue drink if you want to drink a blue drink and if something bad happens, then maybe a Jedi will save you, and if not, HEY IT’S A STAR WARS CANTINA YESSSSS. Space cantinas are fun, but they’re just a fantasy; they’re just a series of outlandish details stitched together to amuse and entertain. You have to open your eyes and see that in the real, non-hyperbolic world that you actually inhabit, your browser will frequently stop playing a video and then display flashing epilepsy pixels while making the sound that TVs make in Japanese horror movies before a pasty

Caret Navigation in Web Applications
heroic wrangling with the DOM range and other apis proving once again that implementing screen-oriented applications on a platform designed for document oriented usage is insanely challenging. The funny thing is that things mostly work on the web and most form-based apps are good enough

Applications vs. W3C DOM
July 2003: The DOM is "Good Enough". The tools are now mature enough (especially Mozilla's tooling). They could be improved however. What matters most is the ecosystem around the DOM as a platform, the tutorials, the canonical applications etc. BUDS!

Rich Web Application Backplane
The Great Game of Forms continues... Birbeck, Boyer and co present thoughts on standardizing core rich web app functionality that XForms or the DOM scripting frameworks can leverage. The WHATWG think they are doing the same thing.

AJAX is great, except for the J and the X
when we look for the new browser to replace the AJAX browser we must make sure it keeps the same 'pain free' execution environment characteristics of the browser. So yes, put in server functionality, but make the server functionality disappear when the us

XForms Patterns: Dynamic URLs and Google Maps
