Anyone using or familiar with Octopus.com? At first, I dismissed this as another 'Pointcast' (remember them?) --but I'm seeing pieces fall in place; backers, press, now content [siliconvalley.internet.com]. Like WAP, this might be a browser-altering issue, but mostly I'm just curious right now.

I'm a bit slow on the uptake on this one. How might Octopus be "browser-altering"?

As I understand it, the browser becomes a shell and Octopus provides snippets of sites that run in their section of a "browser desktop" (to coin a phrase, perhaps). If a site is contained within a section of a browser, how is the presentation of that site effected?
