What is Apple's HotSauce Technology ("Project X")?

HotSauce, initially named Project X, was a short lived experiment at Apple that totally failed.  The goal of HotSauce was to deploy a new kind of 3D visualization plugin to browse the internet and files on your hard drives. Apple released a browser plugin for Mac and Windows but people generally did not enjoy it.  Needless to say, the HotSauce project was cancelled immediately after Steve Jobs came back at Apple in 1997.  Either way, people were not ready for this awkward way of browsing entities.  Maybe it was too futuristic for 1997! :P
