Programming language with a difference

I like exploring different programming languages. Recently while
browsing for new languages, I hit upon a weird programming that
uses whitespaces as its syntax!!!

Check this out to believe it for yourself :-) 

An extract from the site:

"Most modern programming languages do not consider white space characters (spaces, tabs and newlines) syntax, ignoring them, as if they weren't there. We consider this to be a gross injustice to these perfectly friendly members of the character set. Should they be ignored, just because they are invisible? Whitespace is a language that seeks to redress the balance. Any non whitespace characters are ignored; only spaces, tabs and newlines are considered syntax."

at this pace... it is not very far when somebody starts thinking that even non prontable (or even control) characters are friendly ;)
