Yup. That's been my experience as well.

I think a lot of it has to do with HTML providing a rendering model  
that is "good enough" as opposed to "perfectable. That allows you to  
focus on the info model and data flow.

Not to mention the fact that you don't have to grok these huge class  
libraries to make web apps...

I spent a little bit of time playing with RubyCocoa and RubyOnRails.  
I did notice that the rails framework was much easier to wrap one's  
brainstem around.
