Thick presentation tier for enterprise

If the user regularly uses an app,  and it is the main app he/she works with, it is important that it has got good responsiveness. And, for the main app, it is no big deal to install something locally, as long as one ensures remote deployment procedures, I see no reason, why not to have something more powerful, like a plain old desktop app? Well, there is ajax now, there is html5 on the door, and technologies like Flash and Silverlight. They are good or better candidates. Both ways must have their tradeoffs. But, a thick responsive client for a regular user – no miss for that.

If you are good enough to make a responsive client within your browser – no installation required, that’s good. But, do you really need to restrict yourself on that? There could be parallel options to choose from.
