Thanks a lot, what about server-sent, websocket ?
At the same time I am thinking for using webshare command too.
alias *webshare*='*python* -c "import
SimpleHTTPServer;SimpleHTTPServer.test()"'
this command will start simple server at current directory. If i am unable
to do something using file:/// , I will try to use this simple server.
