Read/write web reports that "At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco today, Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen said that the company is working toward shifting all of their apps online".

Programs like Adobe's graphic software require lots of computing power, and it would be a challenge to run those programs entirely off the web, making the servers do all the work. Therefore, it might be possible that what look like pure web programs will actually install snippets of applications, trying to tab into the local computing power.

I think those little program snippets used along with web apps make sense - after all, the computing power of today's desktop PCs is on par with that of supercomputers in the 60's. But in general, I'm not such a big fan of a web service that downloads something onto my PC. Maybe I'm being too tired of Korean internet banking and numerous other services that require downloads of Active X.
