Anyone else bothered by the growth of the web & the move towards Software as a Service?

Mighty browser was revealed today. And streaming web pages, really?

The devs say they won’t be selling your data and will instead operate on a subscription basis but I highly doubt this will be the main approach once competition arises.

How long until an operating system becomes a boot loader for a web browser? Will we even be able to compete with regular software when multimillion giants invest the best talent in the world into web apps that track your every move, on an OS that doesn’t give you root access?
