My experience with their browser based offerings has been of awe that
someone could even make it work at all, but running into problems that
make it impractical to use.

I've used the spreadsheet a bit. I have a couple that are very simple and
work fine, and one that is multipage and a bit complex. It doesn't.

They were trying to use existing installed base browsers to expand their
application suite. The server based idea works well for some things, but
the browser is a poor ui for complicated apps.

What if you opened google chrome and got a remote X spreadsheet running
