As usual, you commercial experience is radically different from mine.  In my 
practice, we save lines of code, development and maintenance dollars by using 
browser-based systems.  Most of our clients need *no* convincing that 
browser-based systems are the way to go, based on ROI of previous experience.

The only point I can grant above is that custom code usually faster than 
browser-based systems, but this advantage is dwarfed in practical and economic 
terms by the disadvantages.

As for "a few lines of code".  Ha.  Please show me "a few lines of code" that 
completely implement any significant enterprise application.  I can handle 
exaggeration, but only to a reasonable extent.
