\'Envision\' for browsing
Open Door Networks today introduced new software, which it says "lets Mac users experience the World Wide Web's increasingly visual nature in an innovative new fashion. '' presents images from Web sites outside the confining windows of traditional Web browsers. Instead of requiring Web content to be clicked through, Envision helps users experience the 'sights' of the Web in new ways, including a slide-show-like presentation, full screen with a digital picture frame around images, and/or a 'thumbnail' view for a broad overview." Envision offers easy access to the textual Web content underlying any images and supports automatic scanning and display of website images. A free beta for Mac OS X 10.2.8 is available now, while the final version is due in July (pricing has not been set).
