This proved to be a popular poll with over 450 votes cast. Its result was resoundingly clear - almost half the votes went to HTML5/CSS/JavaScript, with "Something yet to be invented (17%) beating Silverlight into third place with 15% of the votes. Google's Web Toolkit claimed 7% with Java applets (5%) Flash/Flex (4%) and Java FX (4%) completing the tail.

If you want to know more before voting why not read Why JavaScript is a Jem?
