You could say it's been tried with REBOL, be it the ViewTop or IOS. It's just not been
attempted within a browser window yet - for obvious reasons.
There's lots of desktop-within-a-browser attempts out there and they all suck because
they're all too slow on anything but the latest hardware and fast broadband. REBOL has
the potential to put a fast desktop within a browser window on slow hardware using dialup.
And if it's ever available on all the main browsers and all the main OSs, no doubt someone
will attempt this. But...
But it won't catch on unless REBOL goes open-source. That's just how it is these days.
