(note, this email address is valid and will be for a few months at

obvious changes in a few months).

I've written a short open-source PHP script that when installed on a
UNIX/Linux web server with Mathematica, allows use of Mathematica via
any  browser. There's support for 2D & 3D graphics, but not the live
interactive graphics.

There's some screen shots on both desktop computers as well as a
handheld PDA (hp iPAQ) at

There are no special requirements for the browser - no need for
cookies, JavaScript etc.


1) This allows access to almost all Mathematica functions, including
Run[] which allows arbitrary commands to be executed.

2) Most (if not possibly all) Mathematica licenses don't allow
unrestricted access,

then WITM must obviously only be installed on a password protected
system, to restrict access. (Apache provides a mechanism for this).
I've not tried it over a Secure Socket Layer (i.e https://...)
connection, but it should work fine on that.
