Hello everyone! For the last week or so, I have been developing PrintPage Web Browser. It is a web browser that does not work off of HTTP, Rednet, or some other crazy API. It works of of pastebin. Yes, pastebin. You heard me correctly... pastebin. It is pretty simple, all it does is gets the user input, goes out to pastebin, runs the file, and deletes it. You can download it by typing: pastebin get rQMk4GZC. Creating a printpage is simple. Go to pastebin.com create a new paste, and boom! You're done. But you may be asking, what if I don't know how to make a printpage?

EXAMPLE PRINTPAGE:

start()
print("Hello World!")
stop()

DOWNLOAD: pastebin get rQMk4GZC

So, it's basically the same as pastebin run?

Try using screenshots. Show us what it is and also use code wrappers for install codes when posting

It is :^)
It litteraly has shell.run("pastebin", "run", code) on its 15th line

No, it's clearly not.
It has start() and stop() included too.

Oh wait... start is just 2 lines to clear the screen... and stop just changes the text color and sleeps?
Well the rest of the program must have some magic in it.

(looks at rest of code)
while true do
print("What is your 8-charactor printpage code?")
local code = read()
shell.run("pastebin", "run", code)
end

oh... so it's just a loop that'll continuously run the code, via pastebin run
Still. It's clearly different.

But on the "topic" of the thread again: It's a decent concept, however, it's something that has basically already been implemented. Making it unique from the program is where this needs to head now.
