Although sequential applications are becoming predominantly interactive, parallel applications remain in the primitive "batch-based" mode. New broad-based parallel applicatinos will require interactive behavior. Even the traditional science/engineering applications can benefit from online monitoring and interactive control. We present Conspector, a tool that supports Web-based submission, monitoring, and interaction with parallel applications. With the ubiquity of the Web, this tool and the associated software technology makes it possible to access huge computational power from any desktop, in an interactive manner.
