I agree, you put that very well. There is no 'good' web development tech in my opinion - it's all a bit of a hack. None of the development tools really focus on what web pages are for - displaying information. The way MS keep changing C# and the ballooning complexity of their tools (such as ASP.NET) is why I dropped C# and .Net, though I can see that they would be useful for large-scale and very complex enterprise apps.

I agree that Python has a few hideous oddities in its syntax (its use of whitespace is irritating and the propaganda that it is an object-orientated language is blasphemous). However, I am currently learning Python just so I can see what the fuss is all about, but I can't see myself using it for much except perhaps for online AI apps (though I am looking into JS as an alternative here).

I quite like JS with html 5, as these are of course easily portable, and although I don't like PHP I use it for server-side tasks along with MySQL. I guess it depends on how complex a web site needs to be, but then again I think people trying to do too much with web apps may be part of the problem - I think its better to keep web apps simple and functional where possible.
