comment Communicating between browser and a native application securely
@Zak as I said, you can extend the javascript engine to allow them to talk to each other the way PhoneGap does on mobile apps. You'd define methods that could be called by the javascript on the page which are executed by the native app, or call javascript functs from the native app.

comment Would one use a 2D Gaming Engine for a desktop application?
The specifics depend on the language, but most languages used for desktop programming have pretty complete 2D graphics support, or at least the ability to bring in existing 2D graphics libraries. I don't see what benefit you'd get from using a game engine for a presentation application.

If this is a single page app you can do the same thing you do in the mobile apps. For multiple pages, you can use sessions.

I don't think there is, but you might try doing an EXPLAIN to see if there's any difference in the query execution.

If you are currently using a database, I'd say use whatever database you are using now so you don't have to maintain 2.
