In theory yes but I haven't done extensive testing yet to determine if 
it's robust enough. One thing is for sure - if you send messages too 
quickly in succession they will get dropped. That's basically 
unavoidable due to the hacks it uses.

Cool! Thanks for trying it out. As you point out in the other email it 
actually doesn't contact my server - only the HTML file is loaded from 
there and then the communication is happening locally.

I guess I just realised that recent features of netsend (bi-directional, 
binary) allow it to work. Also I was visited by a magical binary elf at 
midnight who imparted to me the secrets three.
