RealNames Corp. Wednesday opened access
to its Internet Keywords platform with the creation of “developer zone,” an
application that lets users work in the public interface for addressing
RealNames’ platform routers, sample code and various support services.
The developer zone contains sample code for open source tools
that have been Internet Keyword-enabled, documentation of the public
interface for the platform routers. It will enable developers to create customized Net applications and
devices, the company said.
“Opening the platform interface will enable application developers from
every community to benefit from the human-friendly Web navigation we have
created with Internet Keywords,” said Keith Teare, president and CEO of
RealNames. “In turn, they’ll contribute to the implementation of Internet
Keywords as the next generation standard for Web navigation across
applications and devices.”
Alternative Web browser firm NeoPlanet
is one of the companies that benefits from the developer zone, said Teare. Internet
Keywords are an important facet of the free Internet Desktop download that
integrates a Web browser, e-mail client, instant messaging and many other
features into a tight package.
“Like RealNames, our goal is to make the Internet as easy to use as
possible and really enhance the user’s experience,” said Warren Adelman,
vice president of business development at NeoPlanet.
