I totally agree.

We've seen our sales go up exponentially now that we're offering content
management inside the web browser, with all its limitations, it's the
preferred method of editing, even though the editor sucks! (I remember
fondly things like Find and Replace.)

The challenge is to find ways to intimately connect the browser with desktop
apps, if we want the user experience to evolve beyond what browsers can do.
That's why Microsoft's decision to bake the browser into the OS was such a
good one. It's been so hard to get Apple to follow suit.
