Abstract
The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is a 5000 square degree survey of the southern galactic cap set to take place on the Blanco 4-m telescope at Cerra Tololo Inter-American Observatory. A new 500 MP camera and control system are being developed for this survey. To facilitate the data acquisition and control, a new user interface is being designed that utilizes the massive improvements in web based technologies in the past year. The work being done on DES shows that these new technologies provide the functionality and performance required to provide a productive and enjoyable user experience in the browser.
