    "An Australian company on Thursday launched a free tool it says offers
    web browsers a world-first opportunity to view the Internet in three
    dimensions.
    Melbourne-based ExitReality (http://www.exitreality.com/) said its
    application allows users to turn any regular website into a 3D virtual
    environment, where an avatar representing them can walk around and meet
    other browsers viewing the same website.

    Founder Danny Stefanic said that previously only specialised websites
    such as Second Life and World of Warcraft allowed users to enter a 3D
    environment.

    "ExitReality goes far beyond that," he said. "It allows you to view not
    just one website but the entire World Wide Web in 3D."

    Browsers can use the tool to turn their social networking pages on sites
    such as Facebook and MySpace into a virtual apartment, where photographs
    are displayed on the wall and links to friends are "doors" leading to
    other apartments."

    Just installed it. A good idea, but slow even on an Intel Quad Q6600
    with 4GB DRAM, and XP. Seems to eat about 30-40% of CPU cycles.
