What is Cyberdog?

Cyberdog is the best way for Macintosh users to access the Internet!

Cyberdog is a breakthrough approach to the Internet that provides easy and intuitive access to all the Internet resources that you use most. With Cyberdog you can browse the World Wide Web, read and write email, follow usenet newsgroup discussions,utilize file transfer services to share files, explore gopher-space, and remotely login to computers via telnet. In addition, Cyberdog also incorporates the ability to view text, movies, sounds, pictures, and Quicktime VR files on the Internet without the need for helper applications.

Cyberdog also provides you with a common infrastructure which helps integrate all of these parts into one very useful set. Cyberdog has a Notebook and Log to store the Web sites which you visit the most. Its more than a bookmark file of Web addresses though. With the Notebook you can also store email addresses, newsgroups, references to FTP and gopher sites, telnet sessions, references to pictures, movies, text documents, and sound files on the Internet. The Log gives you three powerful ways to view a history of your Internet activities.

Because Cyberdog uses OpenDoc component technology, it's completely integrated into the operating system and can be extended with other OpenDoc components. This integration allows you to drag and drop files from the Internet right to your desktop, copy URLs to your desktop to revisit them or embed them into email, and much more. Using Cyberdog's DocBuilder you can create your own custom applications to access the Internet. When you create these CyberDocuments, you can place buttons to take you to anyplace on the Internet, embed live views of Web sites or data on the Internet or read your favorite newsgroups.

If you use a Macintosh to get onto the Internet, Cyberdog is for you.
