BeOS & Derivatives BeOS came with a relatively straightforward browser called NetPositive, or Net+ in shorthand. Especially by today's standards, it can hardly do anything more complicated than rendering basic HTML, so it isn't of much use. Luckily, Haiku has a successor now, born out of the HaikuLauncher conceptbrowser we talked about earlier: WebPositive.

WebPositive + replicant

Haiku has an amazingly flexible architecture. It would be interesting to add replicant capability to Web+. This would allow you to embed a browser object ANYWARE in Haiku.

How cool is that?

Even better than being a replicant - which WebKit design currently make a bit hard to do - a BWebView object is in the work...

That's not entirely accurate, you can only embed it into something that actually accepts replicants. Tracker implements this by embedding a replicant shelf in the desktop, but that's not something automatic/universal, nor is it desirable in all cases anyhow.
