I've done this approach(which means the application is still being used). My application 
is kind of personal information manager + databse and built using seaside as backend,
running as web server at local machine and application specific web browser.

I have been lurking for awhile. I was just thinking, hey Squeak
/Smalltalk is cool, but its not great for desktop apps because the UI
is not consistent.
So would it make sense to use Seaside with a web ui based runtime for
the frontend? So you have a local webserver. Has anyone tried this
yet? It should provide a more consistent and familar UI to the
powerful Squeak or other Smalltalk backend.
