Everybody seems to be breaking out of the browser
Adobe seems to be the first to introduce this concept with Adobe AIR, then Sun Microsystems also said that very soon applets will have the capability to be pulled out of the browser and run independently without the browser, Yahoo is also doing the same with BrowserPlus. Applications are ready going to be fun to use in the next few months-years. Google also introduced Google Gears for storing data on the client system and interacting with it from the browser. So take the plunge and start thinking in the real world way - where network connections could be unavailable at some points in time, and people still have to work.
