[protege-owl] About webprotege, I need your help~~

Hi Rainbow,

Protege Web Browser support was discontinued some time ago. It is only 
known to work against Protege 3.0, which is now a much older version of 
Protege, so it will not work with OWL or newer ontologies saved with the 
current version of Protege (3.4.4).

It's probably also worth pointing out that WebProtege does things that 
the Protege Web Browser doesn't seem to; there's support for embedded or 
remote Protege instances, user configured front-ends, custom display 
widgets and much, much more.

The website for the Protege Web Browser says the page only exists 
"because we like to have historical records of the various extensions 
that have been developed for the Protege platform". [1]
