Hi Guys:

we studied on HTTP over UDP two years and implemented HTTPP scheme to run
HTTP over UDP on firefox.

attachment is HTTPP extension for firefox-11.0 on Win7.
once install it, if type
httpp://www.iwebpp.com:3000/<http://www.iwebpp.com/>will show:

Hello, iWebPP:
	This is Tom calling to Jagua from UDP.:)


and, when type http://www.iwebpp.com:3000/ <http://www.iwebpp.com/> will
show:

Hello, iWebPP:
	This is Tom calling to Jagua from TCP.:)


Best regards
  Tom
