Well the way I use Rebol is pretty much for simple scripts, for various reasons - some licensing based, some capabilities based - I don't find it interesting to build big solutions in. I want Rebol to be useful for basically hacking whatever system I'm on. Because of this I naturally expect that the way to get other people interested in Rebol is to show them ways they can rather quickly hack the system they're on. As such the plugin doesn't interest me so much as something running on a website, it interests me as something running locally interacting with the browser or other parts of windows that uses the browser's rendering engine. examples: The IE search bar Outlook's html rendering engine Custom built toolbars and toolbutton integration (of which I have a small example running on my system, hoping to make public in the next week) IE context menu calling rebol functions htt webfolder views integrated with rebol Active Desktop (of which I have an example running)
