Sample text

This may sound like a minor difference, but consider all the desktop applications you use regularly, and reasons why you prefer to have them running locally and storing data locally. Offline modes are essential; you can’t always be connected to the Internet (not yet anyway). Speed is also an important difference — disk read/write is a bit faster than upload and download. Another important reason is privacy. Clearly there are reasons to have desktop applications, but why use AIR to build them? More to the point, why build them using a scripting language designed for the Web?

Prism allows the application to be installed and integrated with the operating system just like any other application. Prism does not support any offline functionality by itself though, so while it bears some similarity to AIR, it is not the same. However, the combination of Mozilla Prism with Google Gears would actually provide a similar set of functionality as AIR, so you should expect to see some interesting mashups between these two technologies. There are actually a few other technologies similar to Gears or related to Gears, such as the Dojo Offline Toolkit for JavaScript.

As mentioned before, the download sizes of those environments are comparable to those of AIR. One major difference is the contrast between the processing power of a language such as Java and the processing power of a scripting language such as ActionScript. The other difference is the contrast in development time that this level of power and control tends to demand. This could be seen as the choice that developers are now given, depending on the needs of the application: Some applications require more processing power while others benefit from a richer user experience.
