Web Browsers Are Just Smart Terminals

If you think back to the mainframe days, all the users had was a dumb terminal and a keyboard.

And if you think about it, a Web Browser is basically a Smart terminal.

Through it, you can connect anywhere in the world, get to any website, perform some amazing graphics, video, you name it.

I remember my father's IBM PC from 1982, with a 1200 baud modem.  The green lines scrolled so fast on the color monitor we though who would want anything faster, we can't even read the screens they scroll so fast.

So in a sense we have come along way since the 1970's and 80's.

Dumb Terminals, to Color Monitors to freaking awesome Web Browsers!
