Hi all,

we have released the Disco - Hyperdata Browser today.

Disco is a simple browser for navigating the Semantic Web as an 
unbound set of data sources. The browser renders all information, that 
it can find on the Semantic Web about a specific resource, as an HTML 
page. This resource description contains hyperlinks that allow you to 
navigate between resources. While you move from resource to resource, 
the browser dynamically retrieves information by dereferencing HTTP 
URIs and by following rdfs:seeAlso links.

More information about the browser is found at 

As the browser is a server-side application, you can test-drive the 
browser without installing anything on your machine. To start the 
browser, just click on http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/rdf_browser/

You can also follow our example Semantic Web Ride which demonstrates 
how the Disco browser is used to navigate information about Tim 
Berners-Lee from different Semantic Web sites 

Comments, bug reports and suggestions for improving the browser are 
very welcome.
