Many other applications also support OSC. For web based installations
and for many other things I'd say, OSC is the way to go. It just
misses hardware support. ;) You can go the flash route and use flosc
os similar, or incoporate Java plugins or even just CGI.

You're sadly missing Pd (Pure Data) in this list, which is used
immensly often in sound installations on the web although it might not
be visible upfront. Just ask on pd-list and there will pop up a lot of
examples like the work by Pall Thayer, http://www.this.is/pallit/
