But when you wrote,
No wonder everyone wants to move to web apps.
I initially thought you were being sarcastic: Because of course then, "this application may from time to time act like the web application it really is, and have unpredictable latencies or unreliable operation, ..."
But perhaps you were earnest, and were saying that people perceive web applications to be more reliable. Well, perhaps they can be a smooth experience, where your connection (and server) is fast, low latency and reliable. But in general it's not going to make the issue go away... Firefox is one of the few applications that crashes for me on OS X. :)
f/1.8, which means the shutter of the camera can open very wide, letting in a lot of light but at the same time giving a narrow "depth of field", so that someone's face can be in sharp focus but the background be entirely blurred.
Well, an f/1.8 lens wide open allows you to maximise shutter speed, so presumably you're talking about very low light/slow film situations. (N.B. you have a typo, s/shutter/aperture/).
