Surprise! Surprise! I looked at the new apps installed and there was BrowserPlus. It was not even under the Yahoo folder.
Anyway, it is a pretty cool idea. Here is a little snippet of what they advertise:
“The most unique attribute of BrowserPlus is its ability to update and add new services on the fly without a browser restart or even reloading the page! As a user, this means no more installers to run or losing your place on the web. For developers, you can check for and activate new services with a single function call, pending user approval – we handle the complexity of software distribution and updates for you.”
The photodrop demo is intriguing. http://browserplus.yahoo.com/demos/photodrop/intro they created a little flickr uploader and editor that works directly through your browser with the same richness and direct manipulation of a desktop app.
