[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 just: 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. Sterling
