This is a superb little program and I have used it for the past three years with OS 10.7.5
Does anyone know if it continues to work under Mavericks? I don't want to go through the hassle of reverting to Lion if it does not work.

(for some reason, I cannot give it 5 stars - the system will not let me modify a mistaken click)

Cool app. I've used this with X.3.8 then X.3.9 and it works fine. I would really appreciate if it would hide the menubar and fill up the whole screen though. NOTE: If someone sees an app as pointless it may simply be that their imagination or lack of... is missing the point ;-)

Could imagine that this is quite useful if you want to watch the latest headlines on news-sites like slashdot or similar.
However, should work better than Window's ActiveDesktop. *shiver*

works just fine in 10.3. The app is however rather pointless.

This version of webdesktop does not work on Mac OS 10.3 (Panther). Not sure why! I used to run on 10.2 with no problems. When you go to launch the app nothing happens.
