+To run it, open one or more browsers and point them to http://localhost:8080.
+First connect, then try sending/publishing messages or registering/unregistering handlers. You can see how the server intercepts these messages by refreshing the log. You are able to see with different browsers, that send will always do round robin. Publishing will be censored (never shown in the messages, only in the log).
