The Google Contacts UI sucks

I just spent half an hour tidying my Google contacts, and gettng the list down from 370-odd people to 259, by deleting a bunch of not-actually-people and people-I'm-never-going-to-email-again, and merging together a bunch of contacts.

This process reminded me how much I hate Web UIs. There's always a lag between clicking on something and it opening up, keyboard support is minimal, and frankly the whole process is just less pleasant than using a proper UI.

Which is why I shudder whenever someone tells me that the future of applications is the web. Brrrrr.
