a new concept in Internet browsing that lets users mouse-over any web link and extract the essence of that web page
Syntactica has developed a new concept in Internet browsing that lets users mouse-over any web link and extract the essence of that web page - displayed as a "preview window" - without ever clicking the link. This new tool, called the iReader™2.0 Web Previewer, is based on linguistic technology the company has been developing for several years and was released in a limited beta version in February 2007.
Syntatica is also making available other applications and tools using this linguistics, or text-analysis, technology. The iReader 2.0 API (application programming interface) is being offered by the company on an “Open Source” basis, whereby free source code has been published that makes its iReader 2.0 XML Web Services easy to use.
