  Web browser controller to access and show Web pages for another unattended Web browser

    Disclosed is a system to control Web browser remote. A Web browser is usally used to access Web resources by Web user. But, in some situations, the Web browser is needed to control remote from another user or another Web browser used by the user. For instance, one of the situation is consulting service on finance in which financial consultant or adviser gives an advice to customer by showing financial information or others in customer's Web browser.

This system uses following technologies for Internet; - Web browser
- JavaScript
- Applet - Web server (and application server )

JavaScript embeded in html content can catch Web browser's event such as clicking button to send a form, and can get value from HTML input field. It means that by using JavaScrip it is understood what user operate for HTML content. On the other hand, Applet can communicate with originated Web server. Also, Applet in Web browser can communicate with another Applet in another Web browser by socket protocol through the Web server. The Web server acts as the Socket server and Applet acts as Socket client. So, by using JavaScript and Applet, user operations in Web browser can be emulated in another Web browser as shown in fig.1.
