Ok, you may be hearing it here first, but you're going to hear it a lot over the next six to eighteen months: the browser is dead. With the advent of such things as Real One, Macromedia MX, web services, broadband applications, RSS viewers such as Carmen's, multiple views (as mandated by the ADA and as required by wireless and portable devices), push media (such as this newsletter) and now this, Watson, a product from Apple that pulls data from a multitude of web sites, the trend is evident. Internet content will be delivered into increasingly specialized applications tailored to specific purposes. Let me repeat, so you'll think about OLDaily when you read it in the mainstream or in Masie six months from now: the browser is dead.
