[ALLY] REBOL BROWSER Re:

originally, this browser started, because I wanted
to play with 'parse and 'load/markup, and because
I often use lynx for a quick browse, and thought I
could as well use rebol for this ;-)
Then my text-based browser got a /View Gui, just

browser, I think, but there are many places where
being able to parse html has his advantages, e.g.
the cups printer driver has a www interface for
handling printers, and if I get it to print right,
I'd like a rebol-interface, so I don't have to start
up a browser.
On the other hand, I don't see much sense in having
a /View Interface for Netscape, sorry, I'd just use
the Netscape Interface instead of building just
another level upon it. (Unless you mean things like
rebol reads some pages, and if content has changed,
specific keywords are found, it starts up the browser.)
Ohh, and I never intended to build "all
the existing web functionality that will have to
