I hope this turns out to be the first of many steps in the development of browser-based VWs: http://www.virworld.com/2012/05/new-version-of-vastpark-runs-in-the-browser-uses-html5/
So, will HTML5 be the solution, maybe not with this corporate VW, but soon, I hope, because I get tired of defending the draw of virtual worlds to people who thought they had dissolved and gone away. I wish I had access to more of them at work, and to all their features without having to beg the powers to open ports and stop blocking voice. It’s easy to just give up in those conditions.
