Plain Old Webserver

As a bit of a follow-up to this weeks postings on Opera Unite, this morning I investigated and installed Firefox's 'Plain Old Webserver' (POW) extension. This extension does the same basic thing as Unite - it adds a web server to Firefox. I managed to get it working, though it can't be accessed through my firewall (I would have to open a port to do that). So it's not as simple to use as Unite. There may be other bugs. But the main point is that the concept is out there, and it's just a matter of time before this really takes off.
