Hi All,
I wanted to announce a project I've been hacking on for a while. It's a 
Firefox extension that allows Common Lisp to be used
instead of Javascript to script webpages. Naturally, it uses ECL as the 
lisp environment.

You can check it out here:

This is still a very early version, it's still a bit unstable (very 
unstable on Linux), and limited in functionality. Basically there's 
enough in place to make this demo page work, which calculates fibonachi 
numbers and uses some DHTML to display the result:

For the next version I hope to fix many of the current issues (random 
crashes, dom limitations, single global environment) but figured you'd 
be interested in hearing about where it's at so far.
