"The problem with AJAX is that it doesn't address the fundamental difficulty in developing web applications--the unbridgable client-server divide. You still have to use a completely different set of languages and tools for writing the GUI on one hand, and the server components on the other, with no possibility of sharing code in between."
"A truly revolutionary web paradigm would allow developers to use the SAME language and object model in developing both the client- and the server-side. The server would retrieve an objects from the datastore, serialize it, and pass it off to the client for editing. The client would be able to modify these same objects (defined in the same class libraries) and pass it back to the server, which re-validates them and persists them back into the datastore."
The Swiss government has been seeking for years to convince the Japanese of the benefits of a bilateral trade accord. Japan is Switzerland's third-largest trade partner after the United States and the European Union. There seems to be

Functionality currently still covered by Web Crossing Express will move towards James. Whitebeam, Flash and the new OpenLaszlo are the other ideal candidates for further integration.
"Customers are calling for integrated software solutions that enable them to create, manage and deliver a wide range of compelling content and applications from documents and images to audio and video,"
said Bruce Chizen, chief executive officer of Adobe.
"By combining our powerful development, authoring and collaboration software along with the complementary functionality of PDF and Flash Adobe has the opportunity to bring this vision to life with an industry-defining technology platform.
Safari 1.3 supports HTML editing, both at the Objective-C WebKit API level and using contenteditable and designMode in a Web page. The new Mail app in Tiger uses WebKit for message composition. You can write apps that make use of WebKit's editing technology and deploy them on Panther and Tiger.
The DOM Exposed
The entire level 2 DOM has been exposed a public API in Objective-C. This means various holes have been filled in Safari's DOM level 2 support. In addition to exposing the DOM to Objective-C, the JS objects that wrap DOM objects can also be accessed from Objective-C, allowing you to examine and edit the JS objects themselves to inject properties onto them that can then be accessed from your Web page.
Safari 1.3 on Panther now supports XSLT. 10.3.9 includes libxslt, and Safari uses this excellent library to handle XSLT processing instructions it encounters in Web pages.
