Don’s got a good idea with the “business browser”. I remember there being a company (NeoPlanet if I remember correctly) that had done a “new” browser — by simply encapsulating IE with “skins”, new buttons, etc. I’m not sure what their business model was — I seem to recall it having sponsored buttons, skins, etc. so I guess it was advertising support.
Don’s notion of a business browser would seem to build on the same technical idea — but with potentially a new business model. The key question is what drives download/adoption…but then that’s the same question for Groove and they seem to be doing just fine. I also continously run a very thick client: “Radio Userland”. Could it also do more for me? You bet!
