Browser based thin clients

April 6, 2006

With all the new ‘Web2.0’ type services coming out at the moment based on open API’s and the functionality AJAX type technologies offer, I wonder how long it will be before all our daily taks can be done via the internet? Team up a browser such as FireFox with a very lite weight Linux window manager (for example Ion) add basic workstation hardware and you have a very cheap, functional thin client. Other advantages include much less virus threats and data accessable from anywhere.

Of course organisations would not be able to use the free services to take advantage of this as it would be too unreliable, but for businesses looking at developing new software it may be something to consider?
