20 This is the first W3C DOM compatible version of SeWeR. That means,
21 SeWeR now runs in almost all the major browsers, particularly,
22 Netscape (Mozilla), and Firefox. This is an almost complete rewrite of
23 the internal JavaScript engine of SeWeR. This version was tested in
24 NetScape 7.* on Linux and Windows, Firefox 0.8 on Linux and Windows,
25 and
26 Internet Explorer 6 on Windows.
27
28 Please note, this is the last version of SeWeR that will support
29 NetScape 4.
30
31 *Note: During the release of this version I had no access to OsX
32 machine. This version, therefore, is not tested on OsX. Do request
33 Apple to donate me a machine ;-)
34
35 All the major and minor link problems has been fixed.

38 System Requirement
39 ==================
40
41
42 SeWeR is entirely written in JavaScript1.2. Requires JavaScript
43 enabled browser. SeWeR runs in all versions of NetScape (Mozilla),
44 version greater than 4 and all versions of Internet Explorer, version
45 greater than 4. All DOM compatible browsers should theoretically run
46 SeWeR without any problem. But none of the other browsers has been
47 tested.
48
49
50 *Note: Due to unavailability of any OsX machine this version of SeWeR
51 has not been tested on Mac OsX. This version of SeWeR is officially
52 supported only for Linux and Windows platform. OsX users are on their
53 own. Please do not request to solve any Mac OsX related problem.

126 SeWeR is an acronym, stands for SEquence analysis using
127 WEb
128 Resources. In addition to its common *dirty* use, the
129 word SeWeR also
130 has two meanings- first, "a medieval
131 servant or household officer of
132 high rank in charge of
133 serving dishes at the table and sometimes of
134 seating and
135 tasting" and the second one, "one who sews". SeWeR fits
136 all of these definitions. First, it is *dirty* at the code level.
137 Second, it serves. It serves you a single door to all the
138 common
139 web-based services for sequence analysis. And it
140 sews. It sews all
141 these services together. For a refined mind,
142 SeWeR is an integrated
143 *DHTML portal to common web-based
144 services in bioinformatics*.
145
146 SeWeR is designed to be server independent and lightweight.
147 The whole
148 package is just ~250K. It can even run from a
149 floppy!
