No, because in 5 years' time you will be wanting to do something
different, and there will be a different immature technology to do it
that hasn't yet been implemented on every machine. And of course
there's a serious chance the browser will be on its way out by then
(see how things are done on mobile platforms).

10 years ago we'd've been having the same conversation about Java.
Today Java is still very much alive, and lots of people are getting
things done with it.

5 years ago Flash might've been mentioned. Ditto.

If you're sufficiently determined, you'll manage to get nothing done
whatever the technology on offer.
