I received a message recently that there is a new web browser that supports the REBOL plugin. It's called the TomCat Prowler Browser and is 100% freeware, available from www.tomcat.ws/prowler. They report that REBOL runs perfectly in their browser, although I've not had time to test it personally.

So, since I mention the plugin, you may ask "what is the future of the plugin, do we plan to support it?" Yes, absolutely. In fact, we've built the REBOL.dll for View 1.3.2 (it is in the SDK area), but we did not re-release the entire plugin (which is a very complicated procedure for IE). However, you should still be able to use the DLL if you put it into the correct folder in your Windows/Downloaded Program Files directory.

We want to do a better job of supporting the plugin for IE in the future, but we certainly can use help when it comes to building signed cab files for IE. We don't want really want to spend our time to become experts in that area.

Also, this year, we have a much bigger REBOL project that we will be putting into web browsers, but that's a secret right now.
