  • Patent number: 8392828
    Abstract: Methods and system for customizing a webpage include generating a schematic representation of the webpage wherein the webpage includes a plurality of section elements that are customizable. The schematic representation identifies a plurality of schematic section elements corresponding to the plurality of section elements of the webpage. The schematic representation is rendered for the webpage and provides visual navigation through various section elements of the webpage. A schematic section element is selected from the schematic representation, for customizing. The selection of the schematic section element triggers rendering of respective one or more navigation links, which provide tools or options for customization. Changes representing customization to one or more attributes associated with the selected schematic section element are received and the attributes are updated at the schematic representation in real-time.

  • Publication number: 20100299586
    Abstract: Methods and system for customizing a webpage include generating a schematic representation of the webpage. The webpage includes a plurality of section elements that are customizable. The schematic representation identifies a plurality of schematic section elements corresponding to the plurality of section elements of the webpage. The schematic representation is rendered alongside the webpage and provides visual navigation through various section elements of the webpage. A schematic section element is identified and selected from the schematic representation, for customizing. The selection of the schematic section element triggers rendering of one or more navigation links associated with the selected schematic section element. The navigation links provide tools or options enabling customization. Changes to one or more attributes associated with the selected schematic section element representing customization are received and the attributes are updated at the schematic representation in real-time.

  • Publication number: 20100257466
    Abstract: The automatic generation of a mini-application corresponding to a web site is disclosed. A web site is identified via a Uniform Resource Locator (URL). The web site is analyzed via a computing device to determine its functionality, where the functionality includes features and functions of the web site. The computing device extracts a subset of the web site functionality based on characteristics of the web site. A mini-application corresponding to the web site is then automatically generated by computer code executing on the computing device. The mini-application includes the extracted subset of the web site functionality so that the subset of the web site functionality is accessible when the mini-application executes.

  • Publication number: 20100153884
    Abstract: An enhanced toolbar is disclosed. The enhanced toolbar is not static but is rather updated dynamically. In one aspect, the enhanced toolbar has a bounded perimeter and comprises a plurality of icons visibly displayed on a display of a computing device. Each icon occupies a first space within the bounded perimeter of the toolbar. Upon a selection of a first icon in the plurality of icons by a user, the first space associated with the first icon expands horizontally along a longitudinal axis of the toolbar to display information in a second bounded space within the perimeter. The information is not visible absent the expansion.
