I was working at a client site on a client-supplied computer without the ability to install software. Rather than use the ad-riddled Yahoo client (because that's what they used for communications), I used Meebo. I was amazed at how well it worked, but that's another post...

When using Meebo, the "windows" UI was so good that I constantly found myself trying to drag chat windows out of the browser window. I completely forgot that the little "windows" weren't self-contained.

If I were using a webOS that used a window metaphor and that OS were ALL I were using, I'd probably get my browser going full screen. That's the only way I could remain sane while dragging things around.

An idea with a similar genesis, but from a different approach: http://www.kryogenix.org/days/2006/09/13/online-desktop .

"web-applications more desktop aware" is what I've been waiting for. My best example is I'd love to have the folder I dump my photos in to auto upload to flickr to to have photos I delete on flickr to be deleted on my computer.

If there was some way to securely give that access to a web service I think you could build some amazing products.

Cool. Now I can seriously think in dumping windows. :)
