Technology aside it's ultimately a question of trust. Whatever improvements we see on the server side a more crucial bottleneck is the infrastructure of Internet between servers and users. Few countries have a reliable enough network.
Another dilemma I see, if the browser is to be used to feed us with everything from a working environment to entertainment, is that technique used nowadays, partially because of vendor lock-in and DRM, demands hardware resources beyond what's justifiable. Hence I doubt we'll see swift enough changes, especially in view of the battle over HTML 5. For some companies too much is at stake to give up on the idea of over-exploiting Internet users.
I hope I'm wrong.
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
