One response to “Tim Bray’s Schtick: He Likes 3270 Green Screens as UI”

    Not just back button – bookmarking, sharing links, fully leveraging the browsers inbuilt capabilities (e.g. auto complete), plugins (e.g. greasemonkey etc.), screenscraping (yes it still exists and can still add a lot of value), new forms of semantic markup like microformats, view source… just to name a few. Yes, flash subverts the web and that is significant.

    I’m not totally against RIA though – sometimes it is justified. And the costs of the above can be mitigated if the RIA itself uses a RESTful API to talk to the server – and that API is made public.
