See all the computers on your Bonjour network.

Overview

Just start Flame to see all the computers on the network that are advertising services. (If it can, it'll identify the user of each computer instead of giving you the machine's name.) Disclose the services available from each. You can even delve right into the service record to see the gory details, if you like that sort of thing.

Bonjour has been described as "no-pain networking". If you've ever used iTunes and seen shared libraries popping up without having to configure anything, then you'll know that it really is painless. That's not to say that it's perfect. If you see someone's sharing their music, how do you see if they're also sharing photos with iPhoto?

Unlike existing browsers, which group by service, Flame groups by the machine they're on. This means that you can see the links between services; "Tom's Music" is being shared by the iChat user "Tom", who also has an iPhoto library, "My Holiday Snaps", and a Web server. No need to wonder who's doing what any more.

Flame's still a little immature, but we think it's useful.
