freeware fractal software


I'd like to find a simple fractal script or program that I can include in a web site.

The idea is that when a visitor download the site, this program or script is part of the download and executes on the client computer and
produces a number of graphics that are located in the pages.

Is this a feasible idea?
Does anyone know how to do this?

Any hint most welcome.

Simply an idea:

Find a way to have gimp create fractal pattern through shell
hint: http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_GIMP_Fractal_Backgrounds
Don't know if this is feasible, but worth looking at.

Setup that script in cron, and make it output different photos once in a while, coupled with the random image select of javascript/html.

Regards,

Alunduil

Fractint was some kind of "standard" years ago
