Recently, I discovered the BriskBard browser and especially I discovered this browser was written in Delphi!
The author of BriskBard is Spanish Delphi developer Salvador Díaz Fau, also the author/maintainer of famous Delphi libraries like CEF4Delphi and WebView4Delphi.
BriskBard is a relatively new free web browser for Windows that integrates everything you need to succeed in all your daily Internet tasks. It features, of course in the first place a browser but also an email client, a media player, IRC chat client, news aggregator, FTP client, usenet newsreader and contact manager. In short, if you are a digital native and live on the internet, BriskBard covers all your daily needs in one convenient place.
And wait, there is more Delphi to it. The local web client app is served on localhost via a debug web server. It will come as no surprise that also this piece of the software is a Delphi written application. The TMS WEB Core debug webserver is written using our TMS Sparkle product which is also at the core of TMS XData, the product to create performant, solid & robust REST API backends apps.
And this way, we have really come full circle with Delphi.
Delphi developers can use the IDE created with Delphi, the TMS WEB Core framework created with Delphi and used from Delphi and then run the Delphi created app from a Delphi created web browser that is served via a Delphi web server app. It is just a testimony to how universally usable and powerful the Delphi language, compiler, tools and components and IDE are.

Cheers to 28 years of Delphi and let's celebrate its universal power!
I'm curious to see and hear where you want to see Delphi and TMS Delphi products going in the next 28 years ;)
