    One of the most exciting aspects of modern web development is the potential that comes with building applications specifically for web browsers (or to run "in the cloud.") Originally, Java was meant to be the "write-once, run-anywhere" solution, but it appears that the web has become the perfect medium for that. Who would've thought, right?
