You're right.  There's not any chance.  I like that proverb!

I predict that Google has a goal of making this browser bootable.  In
their modern-day-green-screen world, all one needs is a dumb terminal
with a browser.  And so the cycle continues....  Dumb client + smart
server, smart client + smart server, smart client + dumb server, repeat,
repeat, repeat...

That's a nice thought and I second it, but as all utopian things, it's
never 
gonna' happen... Not in mylifetime anyway.

You know how the proverb goes; the good thing about standards is that
there are 
so many to chose from... 8-)
