Quoting "John H. Robinson, IV" <jhriv at ucsd.edu>:
=> the two biggest problems with html/http as an interactive
=> interface: 1) the stateless nature of http 2) the lack of
=> standardisation in the ``user experience'' (open any given webpage
=> two browsers of my chosing: lynx and galeon, and see the
=> any two differenct different browsers of your own chosing, even the
=> browser with different version numbers, and you won't get the same
=> results. the same browser, including version, on two different
=> platforms, or even the same platform, and you could get something
=> varies greatly. sure, you can say the same of winamp/xmms, but no
=> one is
=> trying to get winamp/xmms to modify their DNS settings)
who's trying to get lynx/galeon to modify their DNS settings? (and
whoever that may be should stop such nonsense). #2 seems like a general
problem, not just related to web apps, just look at the word processing
world ( actually don't look - let's not go down that route :).
i do agree that the stateless nature of http is, fairly commonly, a problem.
