Travel Tip

Want to send someone directly from your web site to your world? If you take the "Activeworlds Universe Browser installer" off our site and rename it to match your worlds name, for example: (WildAW.exe) any user who downloads and installs that browser will start their Active Worlds experience in your world. Try it!
