Configurable browser system
WO 2002003255 A3
Abstract
A configurable browser system is offered. A multipane graphical user interface's appearance and function are controlled by a configuration file. Multiple panes may combine to appear to a user as a unitary browser. Commands executed on one pane may effect the display of another. Custom browser configuration files are created by an affinity source using rules established in a system provided development kit. Requests for content by the individual browsers may be routed through a back-end controller which may alter the request according to the browser settings in the configuration file. The back-end controller may update configuration files without having to install an entirely new graphical user interface.
