  • you can try add more features by your own something like transparent window, chrome less, always on top , more web API, bla bla bla...


  • now you can see that you can easily build your own twitter client in no more than 1 hour! nice!, if you like it just donate them ( i would love to do that too! but i still stuck at 0$ for my own donate! LOL, that's real life ;o )

  • anyway my Google ads it's rise up to $23 by now (until October 2007) better than nothing lol, thx for whoever clicking my banner, it's not much money i know, but it's made my day somehow ;)

  • let's see what we can apply to AIR app....hmmm...., how about 3D viewer? ;D
