Web Profiles are Coming

21 November 2006

In the next update of Second Life (1.13), a new tab will appear in your avatar’s Profile that can be seen by the public. This Web tab can be set to a specific URL that loads a Web page. The rendering of the the page uses the Mozilla browser technology (think Firefox). The dimensions of the page are 400×400 pixels. If a page is larger scrollbars will appear to allow the user to scroll the page.

This is a great opportunity to bring external information about your avatar or business into Second Life. I imagine one of the existing SL profile Web sites will take great advantage of this new feature.

The big question, of course, is when do we get Mozilla-on-a-Prim?
