A (dockable) website that pops up on top of current page in current tab
Rather than opening in a new window, or a new tab, these
websites, when accessed from the address-and-search bar,
will check if the page supports TinyWeb, and if so will open as
a collapsible and dockable window in the current web page,
similar to "Google Gadgets" and other toolkits of this type.
So this is a new type of browser served web-service, for
translation, conversions, calculations, or information such as
a clock, a stock market ticker, or a newsreel.
||Or a browser could support this by just making any browser tab dockable. Any site could be shown in small window, but this would be most used with sites that look good that way. The bookmarks/favorites could store window size/location/transparency properties or even have an auto-open if you like that sort of thing.
||The browser could support some data from the web page that would allow the page to suggest the optimal viewing parameters, so those would configured this way automatically, but could still be overridden by user preferences.
||Well obviously its doable, and even as an add-on to
existing browsers. Any web wizzes out there want to
give it a try?
