Well, we could counter-beat them by developing the very first Facebook client for MSX1 Tongue

Can't we simply port the Flock browser to MSX? It does all these things in one program.
Shouldn't be too difficult - it is open source.

If I'm not mistaken Flock is based on the Mozilla Firefox engine (webkit)... I think that It might be a little bit difficult to fit all that stuff in 64kb of RAM

Since when is Firefox webkit-based? AFAIK Firefox is Gecko-based.. (Contrary to Safari and Chrome/Chromium, which are indeed Webkit-based.)

Could be that I haven't kept up with the last changes though.. anyone got a link if I'm mistaken?

You are correct, Gecko and Webkit are separate engines. And I obviously forgot a smiley or two in my post above Tongue

Nonetheless, a general framework on MSX to communicate with such protocols would be extremely cool. Also HTML should become ever easier for MSX to understand, now that table-free layouts and a switch to CSS are becoming the norm. Displaying text-only stuff with only some structural/semantic markup translated in styling (header levels and lists, perhaps colours, but no positioning and stuff). It would need a pre-processor to compress and get rid of all unsupported junk though.

Sorry, yesterday I wrote that text in hurry: yes you are right, Firefox is based on Gecko and Safari on Webkit.
