Cool! We should also not forget another relatively behind-the-scenes 
XML/RDF application (even if the details are a little hokey). Netscape's
"What's Related" application is massively deployed on thousands of
desktops; when punters click on the whats-related widget in recent
copies of Navigator, it makes a simple HTTP query to their metadata
server which returns a chunk of XML-shaped text. 

For example see http://www-rl.netscape.com/wtgn?www.xmlnews.org

The Netscape folks had plenty of stick on the RDF-DEV list for various
problems with the actual file format used (see notes at [1]) but looking
beyond that, it's still rather cool. Also next to invisible despite the
presumably vast amounts of XMLish data flowing between
www-rl.netscape.com and desktop browsers.
