Stack to Flash

I started developing an app in RoR, because of the easier access to  
"AJAX" technologies, but I'm finding it faster and better to develop  
using a Rev UI.

In this project, it doesn't matter whether the app runs in a browser  
or requires a download.

I am so tired of worrying about how different browsers handle  
different CSS, it is nice to work with a UI that will always look and  
work consistently! Of course, Flash would accomplish the same  
thing... but I find the Flash code needed to pass values back and  
forth to serverside PHP scripts way too cumbersome.
