Wapache is a software that lets you to create desktop applications using web development technology. It combines a modified version of the Apache 2 HTTP server with an embedded Internet Explorer web browser. Requests to the "web server" are handled internally. Data does not travel through the networking layer, ensuring quick response and reliable operation. Wapache also lets you control various browser settings, such as window dimensions and Javascript availability, giving you a consistent runtime environment.

No offense, but yuk. Just get apache, bind it to 127.0.0.1, make all paths relative and use portable firefox (with IETab if you like). Never had a problem.

I think the point here is to help you create a standalone application that you could give to a client or a worker, so that they can use your tool like a standalone application without being overwhelmed.

I don't get it. What's this for? It's like a standalone, offline, Web 2.0 app?

Not certain of the point of it myself, but i obviously misconstrued the point, so i apologize for that.
