[ALLY] Retroweb

From: gchiu::compkarori::co::nz at: 16-Apr-2001 10:01

I was wondering how useful it would be to try Rebol's VID for browsing purposes to communicate with a web server. I modified my home page to contain some VID, and the following displays it. To be useful, what I really require is a VID table superior to html tables, that allows me to manipulate large amounts of data - eg sort on columns, search on columns etc without downloading the data each time. A reblet as it were. Is such a beast available or in the making??
