nothing new, ysbox is going to try to get something done this weekend, but everyone is very busy these days, hence why i keep asking to get some more dev's to look at the source and see if they are interested enough to put some work into it.

it's too bad this project is at a stand still. looked very promising from what i saw. since it would make most python plugins absolete (if you can have bookmarks and just go to those sites).. this is something that if it is done right will bring xbmc to a whole new level. since we'll be able to integrate a lot of things into the web that will integrate into xbmc.

still here, its updated to xbmc cvs as of 6-14-05, but nothing new as of yet, ysbox did a little debugging earlier this morning, he thinks he found the source of some of the crashes when downloading so he is going to check that out later. a few people have contacted me about working on the project, exchaged messages and emails a few times, and never showed up. remember, if you want this, we need your support...help with the code is the best way to help the project, donations are always welcome as well, contact me if you want to help.

not so fast...there are still quite a few other things that have to be done before the team will consider it for cvs. it still needs a download manager and a bookmark manager, it should use xbmc's fonts, etc. the enthusiasm is great though, the work on the integration is going from user support

from what i saw few weeks ago, it looked very promissing. perhaps a lot of people just dont realize the potential for this addon if it is implemented; since media is a huge part of the web now.
it would get rid of the need for web tv, and all those other web services. would get rid of the need for a new python plugin every time a site changes a bit of their code. would bring pr0n and other goodies to the big screen etc... if flash is added, then well.. you know the deal.
this is really the future of entertainment. intergrating the internet with just about everything in your home. at this point, i just think about how wired my house is. i got the xbox as a front for my living room. 2 routers, one for voice over ip, one for wifi, voip phone line, about 4 functioning computers in the house, a computer under my xbox to serve as a dump / xlink server and comming soon a centralized server, with an xbox w/xbmc in every room linking to it. ok, i just went off on a tangent.
i would say that font support should not be on top of the priority list just yet. agreed, it is very important to have bookmark support; where you can just edit all your bookmarks in an xml file or something similar and upload it to your xbox. download manager is not that important, whats important is to be able to temporarily download files for the purpose of streaming. like atomfilm, yahoo's launch, etc...
my 2 cents,
