What is My Browser?
My Browser is designed to provide an uncluttered, highly
accessible web browsing experience for people with high support needs.
The program is a Hypertext Application (or HTA) for Windows95+ and requires MS Internet Explorer 5+ to be installed on your machine (although you can download it from/to any platform).
My Browser is available free and we would appreciate feedback about its use, or suggestions for improvements (
). If you need a
more robust solution for with more features, on-screen "popup" keyboard, and built
in training and assessment modules, please see our EIA - Enhancing Internet Access Browser.
- Simple large, colorful navigation buttons
- Suitable for operation by mouse, trackball, touchscreen, keyboard, IntelliKeys, switch or other alternative access device
- Individually defined links (up to 6) are written into additional navigation buttons on the "Homepage"
- Hot keys for navigation buttons are:
||Link Buttons (0 to 6), press the corresponding number key
- The back/forward history stack is cleared by pressing the Home button
- The entire browser is a single small (approx 20k) file which may be saved to the users desktop, floppy disk, or easily emailed to other users
How do I install My Browser?
Simply fill in the form below to create an individualized copy of My Browser.
Click the Download button, and choose ""Save to disk" - you would usually
choose to save it to the Desktop, or other folder of your choice.
Web links which "open in a new window" will cause My Browser to launch your regular,
default browser in a the new window. Although this does no harm, it may confuse
some users, and they may need assistance in closing the new window. For this reason,
My Browser works best on sites that have simple, accessible web design.
My Browser was developed by ELR Software Pty Ltd under the project
Enhancing Internet Activities and Reading Skills of Individuals with
Disability funded by the Australian Government through the AccessAbility
Program of the Department of Communications,
Information Technology and the Arts.
My Browser is based upon "mybrowser.hta" as described in Programming Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 by Scott Roberts [Microsoft Press, 1999]. (see Writing HTML Applications for Internet Explorer 5.0).
