  The web has become the defacto standard method for application delivery. However, functional
requirements for web applications have begun to scale beyond the capabilities of the browser.
Even with the addition of scripting support, dynamic element manipulation, and asynchronous
server communication, it is difficult to create a user experience in HTML that is truly on
par with that of a desktop application.
  
- Rich internet application (RIA) development platforms are a means of bridging the gap between
the web and desktop experiences. Using browser plugins, these platforms allow developers to
build applications that look and feel more like native desktop applications but are deployable
via the web, like traditional, HTML-based web applications. RIAs also often incorporate visual
effects intended to enhance the overall user experience, such as animations and other dynamic
elements.

  Adobe Flex (http://www.adobe.com/products/flex) and Microsoft Silverlight (http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight)
are arguably the most high-profile of these platforms; others include !OpenLaszlo (http://www.openlaszlo.org)
and Curl (http://www.curl.com). Pivot itself falls in this category.
