what are browser bubbles?

do you want to "display stuff" in your webpage?

perhaps you could use one of these ...

hi, i'm a browser bubble

to the untrained eye it looks just like a little popup window that lives inside your web browser.

it can be opened and closed, moved around, resized, maximised, minimised, all the things a good popup window should be able to do.

it can contain plain text, fancy text, pictures, video, PDF documents - pretty much anything that can be displayed in a webpage.

but then things start to get interesting.

browser.bubbles logo introduction

so you want to know everything about browser.bubbles?

well ... this windows-looking popup IS a browser.bubble.

we should probably start by introducing you to the anatomy of a browser.bubble. here's a simple overview of how they work.

with introductions out of the way, lets get down to the details ...

browser.bubbles logo what are they?

browser.bubbles are a new web user interface for displaying website content in a users web browser.

virtually any web content can be displayed in multiple stylish "windows looking" popup DIV's, complete with curves, shadows, textures, transparency effects, and customization.

based purely in JavaScript, CSS and basic HTML, a single web page can display as many browser.bubble popups as you want. they can be resized, minimized, maximized, and moved around the web page. each popup can be easily accessed via a task-bar within the web page.

browser.bubbles logo customised bubbles

this is a customised bubble (check out the textures baby)!

you can change the fonts, colours, backgrounds. if it can go in a CSS style sheet, then you can use it ... be creative.

in this bubble, we have set the background for the bubble content to have a texture (a different texture for when the bubble is active and inactive), as well as changing the bubble frosting texture too (that's the texture in the title bar and status bar).

we then changed the default font to "Courier New", and made it gray instead of black, as well as changing the font and font size in the title bar. oh, and we've also changed the font for the "action buttons", and made their highlight color a lovely sunny yellow. awwww!

these are just some of the things you can change. check out the web developer user manual for a complete list.

this is the contents of a browser.bubble bubblebox.
  1. do this;
  2. do that;
  3. do something else;
try playing with the different formatting options and then see how easy it is to access the content as either text, rich text, or as HTML by using the copy buttons below.

this bubble contains a simple flat (non-clickable) advert in the status bar (at the bottom of this bubble).

its job is to look pretty and get noticed. perhaps display some information or a reminder for something.

this bubble contains a simple clickable advert in the status bar.

you just have to click on the advert to be whisked away to a lovely webpage somewhere on the internet.
