SurfIt! is a World Wide Web user agent (aka browser) which has been implemented entirely using Tcl/Tk script code. It supports most of the features usually found in Web browsers today - document retrieval using the HTTP protocol, graphical display of HTML documents, inline graphics, hypertext navigation, and so on. SurfIt! also includes many standard browser features such as local caching of documents, incremental document loading and display and concurrent document downloading. As a Tk application, it is easy to construct applications which can communicate with SurfIt!, using the send command, to implement the concept of hypertools. SurfIt! provides direct support for creating tools such as these.
