    Something new for Mozilla users to play with : http://robin.sourceforge.net/


    Robin (Remote Operating System Build in Netscape), a remote XUL desktop environment created by Randall Knutson. A live pre-alpha demo of Robin is available, featuring a basic Windows 9x style user interface and a selection of XUL games. Robin isn't written exclusively in XUL: it also makes use of DHTML, JavaScript and "some crazy hacks".

    If you haven't got mozilla for some reason, then windows, linux , and os x versions are available ;)

    This is fun :D The only thing is that when I am done with a game, I automatically press alt+f4 to close the window... Stupid Windoze tricks... <_<

    Not anything unusual, MS has been promoting their website for media, and that is browser dependent.

    I can't help it that Internet Explorer and others don't support XUL, I just wanted to share something cool that I found :)

    Yes, but MS never said they liked browser independant code better. They never have a validation link on their pages.

    And so on. :)


    Oh and SPeedY_B, I ditched IE now and went for Mozilla. Another soul saved. :)
