Dare I say, “Since the days” of IE and Netscape,
sounds like a reference to the good ol days, but this will be true not too far in the future. With projects like Mozilla drumbeat, working towards a fair and fast open web with super cool projects like popcorn and universal subtitles. The next generation web powered by “non-plug-in” centric, html 5 tags will not only make tasks like video editing, that were client dependant, to pure online pleasures, it will also make learning through video more exciting.
Once ISP’s and mobile device makers improve their band-width and technology, the ever looming data problem on the move should be put to rest. Hopefully nobody will think twice about using their iPads or would be google-pad’s to watch online movies, for the cost of mortgaging their house.
