Can I retrieve kdb data from my web browser and save the query results to a csv file for viewing in a spreadsheet?

Yes. Just enter a URL in your browser whose host and port is followed by the characters .csv?. For example,

http://server:5001/.csv?select from tablename where date=2011.02.25,fname=`JOE
