[REBOL] REBOL in the web browser...

This makes sense...
And while I don't mind if AltMe is or isn't in the browser, (I don't use it and no doubt
some like the dark net approach, plus failure's a relative term), it would be hugely
useful to be able to access REBOL apps from any browser anywhere. Which means having
the REBOL Web Browser Plugin running on all major web browsers and operating systems.
Which was the promise at one time, but seemingly forgotten about in favour of getting
R3 up and running.
I note however there is some new R2 activity...
And redevelopment has started on Rebol2 with a 2.7.7 release by years end ... The idea
is to start monthly releases similar to the Rebol3 release schedule.
That's good. I don't see any point in abandoning one tool in favour of a newer, shinier
one, especially when the newer, shinier one is still months or years away from passing
the feature list of the older one.
My wish for 2010 would be to see R2/View running in all major web browsers. In my opinion,
it's the one single thing that could significantly accelerate REBOL adoption.
