Web 2.0 Applications Collections That Can Replace Desktop Apps

PCWorld captures the best that are happening in the web 2.0 world – As it notes like a child progressing into adolescence, the Web has entered a new era of sophistication. We used to spend most of our time just surfing the Internet--reading and downloading whatever we could find. Nowadays we're more likely to create waves ourselves by sharing our opinions, photos, and home videos; collaborating by text, voice, and video; or adding our own data to maps that span the globe. Applications that run in a browser are now almost as speedy as those installed on PCs. The shift from consumption to participation is a critical change in the Web's evolution. It's now easier than ever to post photos, documents, and other files to a blog, or to publish content as a news feed. This is an excellent list of web2.0 applications in the making.

And while the current crop can’t replace your desktop entirely, they certainly want to head in that direction. In the next year or two we will see if they can continue their success and bring a life online closer to reality. This is an excellent overview of the online applications you can use to replace your PC’s programs. Clearly the web2.0 movement is gaining momentum - though the coverage seems to be ahead - calling for a reality check.In it own waythe web2.0 ecosystem is beginning to be felt, albeit a small niche now.
