WebWM (Web Window Manager) is a web window manager API in PHP, which helps developers to create and manage dynamic windows inside their web applications.

The whole window framework uses JavaScript making it light and versatile (DHTML). In that way web applications can turn into a modern graphical environment, in which users are presented with a series of windows which have web-processes running in them. This means that they can be running many different things at the same time and have the output displayed simultaneously to the screen. Managing these windows is the role of the window manager. It has to keep track of which window the user is currently interested in, allow the user to change windows and create or destroy windows. It also controls the way the windows look, their shape and control features.

Having these "WEB-windows" inside the same browser window, gives the possibility of discarding the use of popups .
