At least HTML widgets act like native widgets. There are some major 'feel' issues with REBOL widgets. The worst is the fact that popup menus are drawn in the view window and are not separate. I have had to increase the size of my main window because the popup menu for my application was being cut off at the window edge and menu items were unreachable! Another is lack of X11 clipboard support for text widgets. Usability issues, not look, is what keeps me from using REBOL/View for anything but the most basic GUIs. -Karl
