                     The 'leaptofrogans' URI Scheme
                draft-op3ft-leaptofrogans-uri-scheme-03

Abstract

   This document describes the 'leaptofrogans' Uniform Resource
   Identifier (URI) scheme, which enables applications to launch Frogans
   Player on a given Frogans site.  Frogans is a medium for publishing
   content and services on the Internet, defined as a generic software
   layer on the Internet.  Frogans Player is software enabling end users
   to browse Frogans sites.

1.  Background Information

1.1.  About Frogans

   Frogans is a medium for publishing content and services on the
   Internet.  From its inception in 1999, the medium was designed as a
   generic software layer running on top of the original Internet
   infrastructure, i.e. the TCP and IP protocols and the Domain Name
   System (DNS), alongside other existing layers such as E-mail or the
   World Wide Web.

   As a medium, Frogans is not meant for publishing Web sites, but
   Frogans sites, a kind of site founded upon a different format,
   enabling a different kind of communication between end users and
   publishers of content and services.

   Frogans is intended to be complementary to the World Wide Web, and
   not to replace it.  This is just like instant messaging, which was
   not intended to and did not replace E-mail.

   Compared to the World Wide Web, Frogans suggests visual rather than
   text-based communication, focused content rather than long pages, and
   natural interaction rather than complex user interfaces (see [FSDL]
   Section 1.4 "Frogans sites and Web sites").
