RoamAbout 18.104.22.168a description
RoamAbout extends Firefox to make your favorite web applications just a mouse-click away while browsing on any web site. The applications display as an overlay on the current page so there is no need to go to a different tab for each such application.
Moreover, the applications can use information from the page to make them relevant to the current page. As a platform, third-party developers can develop their own apps and publish without having to develop their own addons. Users can pick and choose which apps are accessible to them at any time.
The ever-growing set of apps available span entertainment, news, music, sports, games, weather, sharing, etc. Quickly map an address on any page and send the map to your Google or Facebook friends, instantly bring up a music player to play a song or an artist listed on any web page, translate a block of text to any language, just highlight a word and look up a dictionary, play videos, the possibilities are endless. The display is very non-intrusive, no toolbar space to be sacrificed. No need to install multiple specialized toolbars for each service anymore!
RoamAbout extends Firefox to put social, utility and communication apps just a click away while browsing on any web site. It make a growing number of web applications portable to take with you and use it on any web page. You no longer have to depend on a web site to provide mapping or sharing functionality. Or install a specialized toolbar for each web service that you like.
The usage is very simple. Click on an icon in the tray display that appears as an overlay on any page (you can put this away when you dont need it), and the application is displayed as an overlay on the current page. If you have selected a piece of text on the page, many apps automatically use that selection to display relevant material whether it is maps, news, videos or photos.
The platform is built with security and privacy in mind. It does not log or keep track of which sites you visit nor does it allow third-party applications on it to violate your privacy or security. Each application runs in its own sandbox using the full protection mechanisms available in the browser and they DO NOT execute in any privileged mode in the browser. So they do not have access to any other application or the page you are on except as allowed by the user. The apps are disabled on secure sites to avoid any potential problems from third-party applications.
As a developer, you can bring a web service into RoamAbout as quickly as you can design an icon for it using the tools at developer.vysr.com. Google gadgets run as-is in RoamAbout. You can extend them to make them contextual to the page using the APIs. There is no fee to develop and publish apps on RoamAbout regardless of whether the apps are free or commercial.
