Launch of TweetRep.co.uk

I am very pleased to announce the launch of an experimental html5 twitter client called TweetRep.

TweetRep is a browser based Twitter client that aims to give you better insight into your friends and followers. It is complementary to rather than an alternative to your existing favourite Twitter client.

The current technology preview version of TweetRep is limited to Firefox only. It has been tested in Firefox 3.6 only but should work in other versions of Firefox - but almost certainly won't work in any other browser (eg Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome etc).

It also currently requires an install of Google Gears to enable the offline storage. Pedants will point out that strictly speaking this means TweetRep isn't a true html5 app to which my response is that the html5 specification for webSQL is not even remotely agreed and the major browser developers have *totally* different implementations. Gears enabled me to get the effect of html5 with a stable and (potentially) cross browser database platform.

Anyway, if you'd like to give TweetRep a try, it's available at http://tweetrep.co.uk.

If you like TweetRep, please tweet about it.
