Web 2.0 Achilles Heel
Web 2.0 is being used in the most intrusive ways, such as dynamic popups by moving your mouse over part of the screen. You don't need to click the mouse. Just move the mouse over word, phrase or object and you are being monitored and clocked for web personalization. Ads and videos are literallly being pushed down your throat.
The problem is that businesses are becoming far too dependent on AJAX.
Could this be the reason to explain the movement by many web development tools vendors are now beginning make users download frontends?
This use to be way things were done, such as with our Wildcat! Navigator. The irony is that we are looking towards making a Web 2.0 version of WcNavigators, others are looking to making a "navigator" of their own.
