does anybody know of a working and feasible vocabulary browser?

I'm thinking of some neat (preferably web-based) GUI which allows to  
load (autom. via some API in the back or manually by the user) several  
vocabularies which are possibly interlinked either explictly (by  
rdf:domain/range, owl:equivalentClass/Property, other OWL constraints)  
or implicitly (based on statistics obtained from datasets which  
probably only Sindice & Co. are able to fetch at large Web scale).

I think Giovanni & Co. could do quite neat stuff with the "global  
information", plenty of room for side-projects based on Sindice  
data... this would be interesting for the public LOD part. However,  
such a tool whould also help many other, more domain-specific projects  
for information integration based on SW concepts.

Please don't reply with a "do it yourself"... I would, if I weren't  
busy with SemWIQ [1]. And what SemWIQ lacks is such a vocabulary  
browser. Would also be interested in cooperation if you like.

I hope I can make it till the end of 2008...)
