provides a rich set of Internet capabilities to
component applications. while enabling developers
to extend or expand their own products.
Based on OpenDoc
component software technology, Cyberdog brings
Macintosh ease of use to the Internet--offering
users a simple, consistent way of dealing with the
wealth of Internet content and services.
Cyberdog simplifies and streamlines use of the
Internet through its extensive tool set. The tight
integration of these functions also enables
Cyberdog to offer some advanced capabilities, such
as the ability to send messages that include URLs
as live links.
Cyberdog makes the Internet truly useful by
allowing users to develop documents that organize
Internet resources relevant to the tasks at hand.
Using Cyberdog DocBuilder, anyone can create
documents that include text, graphics, and Internet
links or views simply by dragging in those items.
Cyberdog can even be used as the interface to
streamlined, customized Internet resource
What makes Cyberdog unique is that it lets users
handle a number of disparate Internet-related
functions with the same consistency that people
have become accustomed to on a Macintosh system:
double-click to open, drag to copy--whether it's a
data file or a site's URL. That's because Cyberdog
takes advantage of Apple's OpenDoc
technology--which enables multiple software modules
to work together as a single, seamless
application--to provide a level of integration
unmatched by any other Internet tool.

If you're a
developer, the modular nature and open APIs that
characterize Cyberdog software enable you to create
components that either replace its existing
components or extend its functionality. You can
also use Cyberdog components to give your
capabilities--either by incorporating a single
component to give your application a particular
Internet-related feature, or by integrating all of
the Cyberdog components with your application to
provide more broad-based nternet functionality.
* Lets you easily add or expand Cyberdog
components, which are all written to public
* Supports use of
those components in any OpenDoc-based
