I would like to know, whether anybody has extended WWW such, that it is possible
to start arbitrary programs by hitting a button in a WWW browser.

Hyberbole has this feature and it could also make WWW much more mighty.

Included is a short discussion with Pei Y. Wei on this issue. 

By the way, many thanks to Tim Berners-Lee in general, to Pei Y. Wei for his 
wonderful violaWWW browser and to all people involved in the WWW project.
