Eclipse E4 is going even further in the web direction

The latest version of E4 contains “web components”. It warms my heart that they are using Dojo (=true client-side technology) for some of their experiments. JavaScript OSGi modules also look cool (don’t get too excited, though: they are for server-side JavaScript). Update 2009-08-04: Check out SWT Browser edition. Its goal is to enable cross-compilation of SWT applications to something that runs in the browser. Flex cross-compilation is working, other approaches are under investigation.
