Poll: Whose vision of web app deployment do you like the best?

This week’s poll is based on our current feature post, Understanding Apollo. In that post, I attempted to provide an overview of Apollo for non-developers. At the end, I looked at the high level of how the big Internet companies are deploying web apps nowadays. Here’s what I wrote:

It is a fiercely competitive market, with Adobe, Microsoft, Sun, Google and others all active – and each has a differing vision for web app deployment. Google is still very much focused inside the browser, whereas Adobe and Microsoft have made divergent moves to go outside the browser (but both with one foot still planted firmly in the browser). Let’s not forget that Mozilla and the other browsers are enhancing their products at a furious rate. It’s a key point in the evolution of web apps – so who do you think has the inside running at this stage?

I’d like to pose that question as a poll. I’ve noted down the main players in this market – along with (probably over-simplified) summaries of their web app deployment strategies.

Note that I included Mozilla, even though it’s not really in the same space as the other commercial companies. But as Chris Messina put it last week, Mozilla has the potential to be a significant platform for web app dev and deployment.

So let us know what you think, by participating in the poll below.
