Random Software

I stumped upon this in the MS downloads, it’s called “Facebook Dev Toolkit” for Windows and Web.  How does it interact with Facebook’s site?  Don’t know, but it did catch my eye.

Someone mentioned DWebPro to me, and it sounds cool.  It packages up a dynamic website (code, database, etc) that will run from a CD.  The author is Italian, so the website isn’t in english, but there are links off other file servers.  Why isn’t there any OpenSouce software for this?

Google Gears “is an open source browser extension that lets developers create web applications that can run offline”.  All the code is javascript, so there’s no need to learn another language or anything – it just ‘works’.  It looks like a natural progression of technology, first Java and the JRE and now just a simple framework that works with existing javascript.  I’m suprised MS didn’t have this up in their MS Labs.
