Browser Workspace management


Working with browsers are part of every ones daily activity .Browsers are multi window and multi tabbed .There are multiple browsers installed on the users device and all the browsers can coexist on same device at same time .User can set specific browser as default but not all web pages work on all browsers.While working with web pages user often open multiple windows of multi tabbed browser or can open multiple browsers at same instance of time .If we look into user browser workspace , which might be multiple browser multi tabbed multi window browsers opened and user needs to toggle between browsers windows while working.User often organize browser workspace with the help of creating logical group of web pages using bookmark and open all of them in different window in preferred browser.

Example :


All news related in one window (Opening news Book mark folder , all news related pages saved ),
All sports pages in one window (Opening sports book mark folder , all sports pages saved),
All music related pages in one window(Opening music book mark folder , all music related pages saved ), All Finance related pages in one window(Opening finance book mark folder , all finance related pages saved)

Now if user is working on news related window (Last focus browser window) and get an finance URL to open (say got a link in mail ) , it will looks for system default browser and last window in focus and opens the web page in that browser.It will open the music related web page in the news organized window as I was working on that window last, which messes up the user browser organization. Now I have to move that web page manually to other browser window.

Or If user get an web page which is IE compatible and every time user opens the URL it look for user default browser i.e chrome and opens the page in the last focussed window in new tab. Then user realizes it is IE compatible URL and user reopen it in IE.

Currently when URL is clicked to open , system identifies the default browser and if browser is open, identifies the last focus window and opens the Web page in that window in new tab .

Scope of the discussed problem is as following:


While opening an URL , system needs to be intelligent to identify which browser type is preferred on this device for that url and open the web page accordingly on that browser.

While opening an URL , system needs to be intelligent to identify if there are any logical organization of web pages in user browser workspace and open the URL accordingly .

With the help of this white paper suggest a mechanism to intelligently organize the user browser workspace.

- Based on the URL domain name and its extension , identify which browser present in the system is most used by the user for that URL type. Open the web page in that browser accordingly.

- Based on the URL domain name and its extension , identify if any logical organization is done on the device .If done , then look for for open window fo...
