Teamspaces Workspace Clients Must be Web Browsers

Early teamspace products often had rich clients. But it's clear that's wrong. They must be web browsers.

You want to be able to set up teamspaces at will. Often, you'll want to do this with people that aren't members of your organization. You won't be able to make many assumptions about the workstations they're using. Hence web browsers are the natural client.

And it's always better to do things the natural way.

    I’m not so sure about that. A lot of teamwork circles around documents. Browsers are particularily bad in handling edits of documents. However I agree, that a teamspace needs to be accessible with the minimum software requirements. For file handling this would be webDAV, which nicely can coexist with form/browser based information flow around these documents.
