OpenLaszlo is blurring the line between desktop and web apps.
On the internet today, there is a movement towards a better look, feel and more interactivity.
Pimp my site (mypace, et. al).

Brookers from youtube demo :)

Web apps need Sex, Drugs and rock and roll which is a fun way of saying Pretty, Immersive and Rich.

Pandora is written in Laszlo.

Lzx is laszlo’s language. Kind of like XUL for Mozilla. It uses declarative XML.

Can I edit lzx in my favorite editor?

h4. Databinding

There is also a DHTML runtime, so you don’t have to worry about flash.

Demo of LZPics – a Flickr viewer in DHTML by way of Laszlo. Very cool and responsive.

BlogBoxes are a way to give users a widget to take with them – to MySpace or wherever!

Not all roses – resources, searching and others aren’t the best. But there is a accessibility API.
