Flash is a much richer language/environment than you'd ever imagine if you've just seen it being used to generate annoying demos. It's a fully-featured programming language that is one of the main contenders for future application delivery -- that's any form of application, not just annoying graphics. [snip]

Given that, increasingly, the browser *is* the platform these days, not integrating into a browser is a serious limiting factor into REBOL's reach. I seem to remember that there was an IE-only REBOL plug-in at one point. So it is possible; it just hasn't been carried through all the way. Sunanda.
