Todays browsers do far more than many computers could do in the days of DOS. Yet
many programmers are still reinventing the wheel by writing their programs from
scratch in languages like C.
Not only has the wheel been invented, there is a free shuttle running
24 x 7, 365 days a year serving more and more computers every
day. This amazing shuttle is called the Internet, and browsers are the shuttle
Today's browsers are fully equipped with all the code for windowing, toolbars,
scrolling, fonts, printing, saving, and a wide range of far more sophisticated

for users to make local copies for offline use. It can also save you from
writing a lot of repeat code.
Applications for BrowserBased Programs
BrowserBased programming is ideal for reference manuals. Theoretically, an
