How browsers can be used as user interface.
Dewitt, NY: As a part of its effort to keep young professionals in gases and welding industries abreast of the latest web-based trends and technologies, the Third Quarter issue of Welding and Gases Today features an article from Web expert Tim Fusco. His article, called "The Browser As User Interface," gives insight on using Web browser technology to create a robust user experience.
According to Fusco, originally thought of as the interface for hosted software systems residing on the Internet, browsers such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Mozilla's Firefox, Apple's Safari and Google's Chrome are now being used as the user interface (UI) to access and deliver information.
Fusco offers several examples of how and why this is happening. They include:
Functionality Available Anytime, Anywhere - Users are not tied to specific locations or machines such as mainframes or PCs containing needed software and data.
Multi-Task Across Applications - Unlike other technologies which require you to close one program to get to another, browser UIs make it simple to operate and access multiple applications concurrently.
User-Friendly Operation - While the green screens and key codes that characterize command-prompt software tend to frustrate and discourage users, UIs deliver an intuitive, user-friendly experience.
Future-Proof Your Business - As the first truly universal computer interface-so simple that any child can and often does use it-the browser provides access to a new generation of applications.
To find out even more about this phenomenon, head over to weldingandgasestoday.org and check out the latest issue of the online resource for the gases and welding industries.
