[REBOL] Re: REBOL Browser Plugin issues
From: sterling:rebol at: 26-Jun-2001 14:24
I now understand what you are asking for but I think it is
unrealistic. Let's say we support NS and IE... "what about Opera",
what about the Java Browser?
(HotJava is it? I don't recall), "what
about ...", "what about ..." The endless flow of "support my browser"
issues happens. And what if the machine that you run on does not have
NS installed and you are doing browse/via http://... "netscape" as you
have defined it? What then? Does it fall back to IE? Opera? Java?
In what order?
REBOL tries to help yo udevelop your applications as quickly and
easily as possible but it cannot do your programming for you. What
you awnt is ViewPro. With that you can use the shell component and
call "netscape.exe mypage.html"
call "iexplore.exe mypage.html"
or anything else you like. IT would be truly magical if browse could
do what you ask but, as I said, it is unrealistic give all the
permutations of issues.
