Based upon enhancements to NCSA's award-winning Mosaic program, WebRouser features patent-pending technology that drasticaly expands the functionality of Web-based applications, and provides a simple and convienient way to add new features to browser programs through the use of plug-in applications, called Weblets(TM).
Other unique features of WebRouser include client-side image map support, and the ability for the browser's button bar and menu structure to be dynamically modified by simple commands within HTML documents.
Client-side image maps, for example, allow HTML authors to create graphical interfaces to their content that can be distributed on CD ROM, using the same image-map-based front ends as the online versions.
