  • Patent number: 9805377
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for determining the visibility of downloaded objects, such as electronic advertisements, on a client device screen comprise consulting one or more draw-count properties associated with the advertisement, such as screen-draw-count, window-draw-count, or document-draw-count properties; and determining whether the advertisement was likely visible based on the one or more draw-count properties. A plurality of objects, such as transparent pixel images may also be placed on or around the advertisement and their draw-counts compared. If only some of the transparent pixel images have non-zero draw-counts, then it may be inferred that only a portion of the advertisement was visible on the client device screen.

  • Patent number: 9015577
    Abstract: Content can be flowed through one or more containers that can be laid out analogously to printed material. Content is flowed into the first specified container until that container is “full” of content. Subsequent content is then flowed through subsequent containers, each of which is individually identified, and whose ordering is specified independently of their position and visual presentation. Multiple independent sources of content can be flowed through multiple independent collections of containers. Each container can format the content presented within it independently from other containers, and each container can comprise script, or other programmatic constructs, which can operate on, and modify, the content flowed into such a container. To provide for the rich layouts, content containers can be nested inside one another such that multiple layers, or levels, of the layout can be edited independently of one another.

  • Publication number: 20150026566
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for web browsers to prioritize rendering of low quality (LQ) tiles of webpages into high quality (HQ) tiles based on an estimated amount of information content in the LQ tiles. While HQ tiles are tiles that have been rendered previously, LQ tiles are scaled down versions of the information content overlapped by the LQ tiles. LQ tiles provide quick thumbnail sketches of the information content but need to be rendered into HQ tiles to fully display the information. Web browsers may display a frame of a webpage as a mixture of LQ and HQ tiles. The amount of information of the webpage content contained in the LQ tiles may be estimated using information metrics. The importance of the LQ tiles is ranked based on the information metrics. LQ tiles that have more information, and hence deemed as more important, are rendered into HQ tiles first.

    Abstract: A page transition system is described herein that allows for fast switching between a master page and one or more detail pages of a website, without substantial recoding of the website. The system includes a software library that handles link click events in the master page and the back button in detail pages. When the user clicks a link in the master page, the content of the master page is hidden and the content of the detail page is displayed in a hypertext markup language (HTML) iframe or similar construct that occupies the entirety of the browser viewport. When the user clicks the back button in the detail page to return to the master page M, the iframe is hidden or destroyed, and the content for the master page is unhidden. Thus, the system provides smooth page transitions that are faster for users and lower in burden on the server.

  • Patent number: 8700985
    Abstract: A user may desire to provide feedback on a web page displayed at a client. To collect feedback, a feedback module is provided to and executed at the client to provide feedback functionality. The feedback module creates a mask to prevent interaction with the original web page, clones the original web page, and displays a clone version in place of the masked original page. In addition, the feedback module creates an annotation frame to receive annotations of the clone version of the web page. A feedback report including a feedback image showing the clone version of the web page and the received annotations is generated by the module for submission to a server.

  • Patent number: 8689099
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for performing cross-domain communication using messenger frames. One or more messenger frames are dynamically generated in response to determining that a message is to be sent from a first frame in one domain to a second frame in another domain in a client. The message is sent from the first frame to the second frame by embedding the message in addresses of the messenger frames. Code executing in the first frame and code executing in the second frame are restricted from direct communication in the client.

  • Publication number: 20140089788
    Abstract: In various example embodiments, systems and methods for a domain split display are provided. A first request call directed to a first domain is received. In response, first served content including content retrieved based on the first domain is transmitted to a client device. The first served content is used by the client device to generate a parent page comprising a content iframe, which is associated with a second domain. A second request call directed to a second domain is received and second served content is transmitted to the client device. The second served content includes content retrieved from the second domain. The second served content causes a data receiver iframe associated with the first domain and an event receiver iframe associated with the second domain to be displayed within the content iframe. User-generated content for display in the data receiver iframe is then transmitted.

    Abstract: A system comprises a combination of user examination decisions and semi-automated extraction tools, integrated into a web-based administration interface, to permit a user to quickly catalog a publically available financial website and extract financial rate data in a reproducible manner. The reproducibility of the extraction process allows for automated processes to re-extract the rate data as often as necessary to attain at least daily accuracy of recorded financial rates for a financial institution. The system allows for the tracking of over a quarter of a million financial rates, across varying website technologies and display formats, and the daily tracking of financial institution product data and especially financial products with frequently changing rates. A stable repository of rate data is also created to allow for data mining of financial trends to syndicated parties.
