 Hi Jim --

OK, you say: "Browser based applications will be a majority in the future", 
and I say: "Mobile and desktop applications will be a majority in the future".
In both cases we're talking about UI/UX parts of applications with their server/cloud/web services/distributed workflows/... parts running outside of front-end devices.

Thank you.
