Combine the best of desktop and online world. The multi-award-winning smart application maker BrowserBob Professional is nominee for Â?Best Web EnhancementÂ? at the 2005 SIA, Shareware Industry Awards, the so-called Â?Shareware Oscar.Â?

The tool, whose roots date back to 1999 and that started as a rapid custom browser maker, as the name says, has evolved to the industry standard authoring solution for combining web and desktop functionality. Web designers & developers have found the tool an efficiency booster for their work. This Drag & Drop authoring suite combines all the formats and technologies of the web, such as HTML, Flash, Scripting, any media files and documents to new online or desktop programs. Development of smart clients, real eBooks, multimedia presentations, eLearning software, desktop portals, multi purpose custom browsers, and many more types of applications, has become a matter of few hours if not minutes.

“One of the best programs on the market, to create web-enabled application interfaces,” states WebDesigner magazine, UK.

The unique possibility of combining web pages and any other media to standalone or online programs within few clicks of the mouse, opens the world of application development to a group of users who never dreamt of developing their own applications before. BrowserBob is an example of how easy it is these days for the "ordinary" person to become an application developer without any formal training, as review author Joe Tex puts it.

On the other hand, due to its open, script programmable environment, it is a fund of new ideas and undreamed-of possibilities in the field of rapid application development for professional developers.

Technological highlights, to name just a few, are the web page integration of interface functionality, which allows for creation of seamlessly integrated web/user interface interaction and full control over the application out of HTML pages. Interface exchange on the fly and BrowserBob’s scanning functionality, which makes the program react to URL’s and more, both stand for smart interaction between content and user interface of new “smart” applications.

The graphics based controls and the user interface can be in any shape or design the developer can think of. Adding own functionality can be easily achieved via web technology, while the suite contains huge sets of ready-made program functionality for Drag, Drop & Select authoring ease.

The latest release of BrowserBob is version 4.1 and comes in 3 editions, a Professional edition and feature limited Developer and Basic editions. All versions are available as 30 day fully functional trial downloads via the BrowserBob homepage:

Additionally BrowserBob provides full, unlocked special editions or former full versions for the press, for cover mount CD/DVD distribution, depending on editorial content and cover spot placements.
