HTML5 and GWT might be the future

WIth all the advances in browser technology and HTML5 I am very optimistic about the future of Google Web Toolkit (GWT) which uses JavaScript. 


My only concern is with ability of a lot of users of IE to update to modern browsers, that however, will not stop niche developers (companies) from creating interactive sites, games and communities. There is already a trend to ignore IE6 users altogether.


This is a demo that demonstrates the potential of rendering 3D graphics in the browser, using O3D, an open-source web API for creating rich, interactive 3D applications in the browser. The app shown in the video is coded in JavaScript and HTML and runs in a web browser. Learn more about O3D athttp://code.google.com/apis/o3d
