Demonstration of Robin Remote XUL Desktop Available

Friday June 27th, 2003

Gerald Bauer wrote in to tell us about 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". The XUL News Wire has more information about Robin.


#2 Great for thin clients and web/served apps.

wow, that is awesome. When MS started fighting Netscape years ago it was because they were afraid that NS was going to take control of the desktop UI and have applications running on the browser. This application has the potential to do just that. Applications on the server or remote locations and running on a browser that simulates a desktop.

How i get to move in Pagman? Anyone know?
