The Client Side

With many client-side technologies available on the market, finding a good solution may seem a somewhat daunting task. Some of the leading technologies have been researched in order to provide Simpleton with enough information to make an educated decision on what to use for the front end. The graphical user interface (GUI) is key to the application, since the user will be interacting with it while the server takes care of the email-handling behind the scenes. This section details the common solutions that can serve as the GUI for the email application.

Dynamic HTML (DHTML)

DHTML allows developers to take HTML one step further and provide interactivity to static pages. Most browser versions later than 4.0 have built-in support for DHTML. Since DHTML resides completely on the client side, there isn't much interaction with the server. Most of the content has to be downloaded to the browser, where it can display certain information based on the user's selection.
