Second Life To Transform Internet, Browser Tech By 2017

Actually, she said it lived out its usefulness a while ago but technologists keep bending it to their will, instead of moving on to something else.

“Once upon a time, your browser was just text and images,” said Snyder. “Now, it’s incredibly rich and it has Java, ActiveX, and Ajax. Client-side applications are executing in your browser. It’s already so far away from text and images. In 10 years, it will be more about this first-person avatar-based 3-D experience.”
