With the demise of Sun Microsystems -- the late, lamented high-tech pioneer responsible for groundbreaking technologies like Java and Network File System -- it's looking more like Google has assumed the mantle of chief risk-taker and eye-opener in the software industry. Evidence of this can be seen with projects like the Dart programming language, Google Web Toolkit, and Native Client, which was the subject of a recent evening gathering at Google's Silicon Valley headquarters.

But Google does not control Java, It is sad. Dart looks promising but takes long time to see the effects of this. Native Client also looks interesting but Microsoft killing plugins and the dead of Silverlight, Adobe will kill flash, Apple does not allow plugins on their platforms. Nobody wants plugins anymore, the future still for HTML5/CSS3/Javascript.

Miloskov, no wonder Google aggressively promotes and funds Chrome.

Native Client is a step back in the wrong direction. It would be better to put more efforts on web standards and how to accelerate those, rather than fragmenting the web even further by making it be more platform dependent.
