Tim --

I would LOVE to see OpenSim fully integrated with a Web browser.

There are some projects working on doing this, with 3Di being the farthest
ahead at this point.

However, for the most part, the OpenSim grids use the standard Second Life
browser and its various spin-offs.

The reason I consider the OpenSim platform the next Web, and Crista Lopes
the next Tim Berners-Lee, is that it's possible to create hyperlinks in one
3d world that take you to another 3d world. The teleports are smooth and
work the same whether you're teleporting from one part of a grid to another,
as if you're teleporting to another grid -- you still look the same, you
still have access to your inventory, the teleports take about as long, and
there no need to log in a second time.

These hypergrid teleports have been working for about a year now, and every
day more grids and worlds are becoming hypergrid enabled.
