We wrote two apps, Alice (an ActiveX component for IE) and Zealous
(a XUL component for Mozilla/Firefox), each which use the same
underlying protocol, for a number of games at Skotos. Check out
Castle Marrach or Lovecraft Country at www.skotos.net (30 day free
trial) using IE and Firefox to see how it works. Both we've been
quite willing to share if others have serious interest.

There are also some new techniques using AJAX where you can simulate
a stream -- you can see this in my www.synchroedit.com alpha. We'll
probably be publishing that library separately soon, as I think it
will be quite useful for web games.
