Drop Down Menus...

I suspect that if an app were to be created that really allowed for "Drop
Down" menus that can be initiated via the "right" mouse key, the web app
would have to be a java app....

I've seen some web based java apps with this functionality, but never any
php/perl.. I didn't think python would be able to given that it is server
side, whereas a java web app, because of the shipped/downloadable components
could provide this kind of functionality..

If you are talking about client-side menu's, you should be looking at
Java or Java-Script.

Python is good at server-side scripting, but there is no >widely
installed< python interpreter on peoples browsers that would work,
whereas java and javascript are pretty much the standard in client-side
scripting in web browsers.
