Uncov: ‘Meebo Is What’s Wrong With Web 2.0’

Nice rant about web apps that consume copious amounts of memory and CPU time from Uncov, a new site focused on nerd-level coverage of web app startups:

The user doesn’t care that Firefox’s JavaScript interpreter runs in the same thread as the renderer, and that faulty JS can bring down the browser. The bottom line is, if the user comes to your application and Firefox crashes or starts eating memory, your application is at fault, not Firefox.
