Hi there,

GWT generates JavaScript which is optimized for each browser (IE, Firefox, and so on). So you do not have to develope against each browser as with a lot of other web frameworks (apart from plugin-dependent frameworks as Flex or Silverlight).

ZK claims to offer cross browser support - and does not require a plugin. Can someone please explain, if ZK is as browser-independent as GWT?
Wikipedia says: "Running the application logic on the server in a single application container reduces the amount of cross browser and browser version testing when compared to extensively programming the DOM at the browser."

Ok, it reduces the amount. But is it as good as GWT? Maybe the "ZK Client Engine" does the work to be browser-independent?

I hope you can help me out... Thank you.


Best regards,
Kai
