Mobile applications[edit]

Is Nokia WRT an example of a SSB? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.3.234.11 (talk) 15:29, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Internal consistency issue: the mobile applications section currently assumes that the definition of "site-specific browser" is the more specific meaning previously given to "general purpose site-specific browser"... there are certainly many mobile applications for iPhone and Android, if not other platforms as well, which consist of dedicated web browsers for a single website. 76.179.16.229 (talk) 16:45, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Augmented browsing. No? --69.125.2.186 (talk) 23:51, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

GreaseMonkey, augmentation and task-specific/domain-specific browser tech[edit]

The Greasemonkey article is now more informative in the section Equivalents for other browsers.

We need to re-design this article in terms of site-domain-task.

When I am running Mobi, Rikeichan, Rikeisama or PeraPera on FireFox, my browser becomes a different tool because those extensions work in Text Areas on my own local web pages. One unexpected result is that they render Google Translate otiose.

Those evolving plugins/extensions conflict with each other on Firefox - just one exmaple of how far we have to go in such a simple thing as a non-Japanese web user having an effective user experience at Japanese web pages or non-Japanese pages devoted to Nihongo content such as Haiku at wikisource or wikibooks.

Those extensions also have word list options - something which flashcards-in-the-browser are slow to adopt for web language learners (and so my continued interest in Curl programming language CSPD.)

None of the current changes involve add-on's for Text tasks which are themselves written in smart text-oriented languages such as Icon (Unicon, Object Icon) or smart parsing languages such as PEG-equivalent Rebol or rule languages such as SWI-Prolog.

Strikingly, for me, no Smalltalk variant has yet produced a browser (and the Squeak Sophie e-text project appears to have failed.)

Gollum as a WP SSB[edit]

Could Gollum browser be mentioned as a multilingual SSB for wikipedia.org ? --Grshiplett (talkcontribs) 14:01, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

My SSB experience/info[edit]

To remove Google Chrome's URL/bookmark/tab bars in an app, one has to define the app's window type as "open as window" (which behaves like a popup window rather than a regular browser window). Unless a site forbids iframes, a HTA can be made into a SSB - such as before OMGpop's closure, I was able to produce a HTA and compile it with script2exe. Also, Pokki apps are essentially SSBs, and all Zynga-made Pokki apps essentially duplicate each other as they're all just Zynga.com SSBs starting on different pages. Also, Mac version now supports this, with toolbarless window and Chrome's "App Launcher" - Yura87 (talk) 17:21, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
