I use Mozilla too and I was send from their homepage to some other "homepage" because my "browser may be incompatible and sorry for any inconvenience" blah blah. So I lost interest. It may be cool as hell but it isn't because it's only Explorer specific. The Alambik viewer could be launched also outside the brovser, just ensure you have asociated .tvd suffix with the alambik.exe...

Yes, that's true. And that's the reason why I don't think that REBOL/View should have DirectX support as some people suggested. Maybe REBOL isn't fastest right now but there are other ways than using some tricky proprietary API existing just for one platform. I think each port of Rebol/View should get maximum from the possibilities of the platform where is runnig. So why should REBOL use slow and ugly software rendering on systems with great graphics power? I think this has nothing with multi-platformity. We are talking about visualising techniques not about language itself. I'll bet every programmer will be glad to see the same code is runnign way smooth on accelerated machine than on some old-timer from 90's... Regards, Cyphre
