Protocol for notifying fixed size web browsers about info-hardware events
Extending the info-hardware concept to web browsers would allow for third party web developers to act upon info-hardware events. Info-hardware events, to explain a bit further, are changes to hardware inputs (buttons, connectors, scroll wheels, switches, etc) that are displayed on a device close to where the change took place. Examples of info-hardware events are: Showing a symbol when the user is connecting a USB cable to a handheld device, visualizing the user pressing one of the volume buttons, showing what state a hardware toggle is in when the user is toggling that hardware switch, etc. Note all these notifications will be shown on the screen next to where the connector, toggle, etc sits. This is done to give the user direct feedback on the action on the location of the change.
Doing so would make the system start asynchronously alerting about info-hardware change...
