A development in the Second Life virtual world indicates that a SL will soon release a browser that virtual world inhabitants can use to browse the real world internet. Commentators are pointing to the updated “Help function” which appears to be working like a web browser – calling help pages from a URL. Right now SL inhabitants can’t change the page browsed but that will change soon – whether SL like it or now.

Already, hackers have posted on their sites a method that lets SLers can change the Help page to the page of their choice (by hacking the .ini file on their desktop). Surely, soon – some bright spark will be able to hack the functionality to allow people to browse like the do in the real world.
