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.

wow, this is a pretty good app, but the only problem i had with it is that when im on the desktop (instead of clicking on the icon in the dock), im not able to click on any links/move up/down on the page

works suprisingly well, however all the extras would be nice. But it loads pages just fine, including images, and if it could just let me know somehow that a page is still loading, and include the extras that "normal" web browsers have these days, I'd be all for it. However, if Microshaft came out with the "on the desktop" feature for IE, then I'd probably still go with that instead...
