[REBOL] Re: /View browser plugin

From: rgombert:essentiel at: 18-Apr-2001 18:18

Actually we can see how peoples have massively (and sadly) used java applets in their webpages... providing the same ability for Rebol applets will give the language a great popularity : it's safer, easyer, more stable, and lighter. I would love to use REBOL applets inside webpages, and surely most java users will follow us this way if RT open it. The difficult side is that Rebol plugin will have to adress the browser DOM and "talk with the javascript" to achieve interactivity with the rest of the document. These are not trivial functions to add (have to deal with OS AND browser software)... so i think RT would do better to end its work on the actual product line and documentation, and then decide to do it or not. My opinion is that RT have to provide such a plugin... but only after completion of current tasks (releasing Core/pro etc.).
