As useful and as clever as Torrent’s web UI is, I’m still deeply disappointed. I’m disappointed that, with all the technology at our disposal, we can’t come up with some way to deliver a full-fidelity user interface over the wire for an application as nifty as Torrent. I’ll belatedly agree that web interfaces are “good enough”– but after all these years of progress, why should we have to settle for something that’s merely “good enough”?

I guess it will take another 5 years before web apps are really good.
