Why asynchronous programming (1)?

With the introduction of the mouse as input tool the event driven programming won an outstanding meaning in the realization of applications. Programming input sequences and loops for the repetition of tasks in up-to-date programs is no more accepted by the users.

To illustrate this I realized a HTML page this way of programming as we would have it done in beginning of the 80's (at that time in Microsoft basic on Apple II computers and with line numbers and goto).

Do you expect, that web applications are realized in such a way or that they are present in this way the user? - I don’t! Those times are over fortunately.

Even if one really uses HTML as the in- and output formular the situation doesn’t really change.
