[REBOL] Re: /View browser plugin

From: cyphre:volny:cz at: 18-Apr-2001 17:46

Hello Christopher,

Why not? I can imagine lots of /View faces(applets) built inside the html code and running some background tasks(streaming...) on webpage page...

Yes, but why to hide such a good product and not show it to really big "WWW audience"?

Sure, but I think its not so hard to recognize what system/platform is user running and offer him proper plugin binary for download... I'm not any expert in plugin field but I think it is probably similar work to port rebol executable or rebol plugin for specific platform/system....or maybe I'm wrong(send flames to me C programmers:)))?

I absolutely agree, I really love all that SMALL but GREAT rebol proggies. I feel they should together create one big living entity but this need a lot of work and human power beacuse TIME is our enemy in this strange world...and we need to spread this technology as fast as we are able. So why don't use such a great and fast highway as WEB is? Finally, it is up to RT and instead of typing this stupid text I could make a little /View script ;-) Regards Cyphre
